Y Combinator have announced the registration for Startup School 2022, a live, online course where YC Group Partners and successful YC founders teach you how to build a billion dollar company. It will be the first Startup School course to feature in-person meetups and talks in over a hundred cities around the world.
The YC Startup School 2022 course will run for 7 weeks from Monday, June 27th to Wednesday, August 10th.
For the last three years, the YC Startup School have been run remotely as a result of the global pandemic. The last live Startup School was in the summer of 2019 before COVID-19.
- The 7 week course will begin June 27, 2022.
- It’s free and open to everyone.
You don’t need to have a startup or a startup idea yet; Startup School is the perfect place to find one.
- Talks from some of YC’s most successful founders, including Amjad and Haya Masad from Replit and Blake Scholl from Boom. For the first time, these talks will be hosted live on Zoom, so participants can ask questions and interact with the speakers.
- Aspiring founders track (Founders who don’t have an idea yet and are just exploring doing a startup.)
- Active founders track (Founders who already had an idea and were actively working on a startup.)
- Integration of YC’s co-founder matching site into the course. YC runs the world’s largest co-founder matching site, with over 30,000 founders and 70,000 matches made. If you’re looking for a co-founder, it’s the best place to go. During the course, YC will host many meetups and speed-dating events for people looking to meet potential cofounders.
For the first time, YC will facilitate hundreds of in-person meetups and talks in dozens of cities around the world.
Some of the most successful YC alumni will host large-scale, 100+ person meetups at their offices. Each meetup will include a talk by the founders on how they built the company, followed by a networking session where you can meet the company founders and each other.
Here are the confirmed talks at YC alumni offices in 30 cities; more talks to be added soon. Note that access to these meetups is subject to capacity limits and dependent on local covid conditions:
