We were able to seriously network with startup founders from around the world with varying skills and backgrounds. This has been invaluable for us. We were not sure what would happen when the course ended. Thankfully we will have access to the entire network because Y-Combinator decided to keep their chat channel up forever. We are also grateful that Michael Rubin has agreed to continue to be our mentor in the days to come. We will definitely find him when we need to get set up for funding to facilitate our business growth. This startup is currently fully owned by LightBe Corp
, our umbrella corporation. However if we start getting funding it will be spun off into a separate corporation which he can help us with as well. We may also consider applying for the full 3-month Y-Combinator accelerator program at that time.
There's a lot more I can say about this wonderful experience but I don't want this post to be too long. We completed Startup School on June 16, 2017. 1,584 of the 2,820 companies completed the Startup School Founders Track. The last task we did was to create a presentation of our startup to be used in a directory where people familiar with Y-Combinator can search by vertical / category. We are listed as a healthcare startup. Here is our Y-Combinator presentation
. We expect many great days ahead!
