About Y Combinator
Two times a year, the legendary Silicon Valley-based accelerator hand picks the most promising startups in the world to fund. They also provide access to resources, their network, and world-class mentorship.
A few notable YC alumni include AirBnB, DoorDash, Dropbox, Stripe, and Instacart. Here in Utah, Pickle's backyard, Podium and Weave got their start through YC, as well.
Typically founders spend 3+ months in San Francisco focusing 100% of the time building their company alongside YC mentors and fellow startups. However, due to the realities of the pandemic, recent cohorts have gone fully remote.
It has been incredible to witness firsthand the adaptability and resilience of the participants and mentors to pull off this feat while maintaining the high quality programming startups have come to expect from YC.
When Pickle was born back in March 2020, we had no idea where this journey was going to take us. We set out to build a platform that helps companies of any size have direct insight into all of their conversations with customers.
We had no idea how many companies would be positively impacted by having unprecedented access to their conversation transcripts with customers and powerful insights via our machine learning algorithms.
Acceptance into Y Combinator has validated everything we have been working on and where we are headed.
