Join our next Ventures Connect event featuring an online panel of UQ alumni who will share their unique startup journeys going through the Y Combinator program  - the competitive Silicon Valley startup launcher considered the #1 accelerator program in the world.

The three-month Y Combinator program takes ventures from early-stage startups to raising funding on a large scale. With notable alumni including Airbnb, Stripe, Twitch, Reddit and Dropbox, it is no surprise that the founders' startups on the panel are thriving.

Our panelists will be sharing their key insights, including applying and surviving the intense demands of the program, delivering on Demo Day, closing investment rounds and thriving on the other side.
