About Y Combinator:
Y Combinator provides seed funding for startups. Seed funding is the earliest stage of venture funding. It pays your expenses while you're getting started. Some companies may need no more than seed funding. Others will go through several rounds. There is no right answer; how much funding you need depends on the kind of company you start.
Since 2005, Y Combinator has funded over 800 startups, and the Y Combinator community involves over 1,600 founders. Y Combinator-funded companies have a combined valuation of over $30B. At Y Combinator, the goal is to get you to the point where you've built something impressive enough to raise money on a larger scale and you can be introduced to later stage investors.
