Y Combinator Winter 2021!

Y Combinator (YC) is the premier startup accelerator. Over the past 15 years Y Combinator has funded and mentored over 3,000 companies/startups including Stripe, Airbnb, Dropbox, Instacart, and Doordash. YC’s 3 month accelerator program funds and supports only the most promising and impressive startups and founding teams from around the world. With resources, expertise, and hands-on mentoring, the 3 month accelerator program ensures that each startup admitted into YC is on a strong path to success! 

All three Charge Running founders jumped right into the program. Committing each day to learning from their Y Combinator mentors with the goal of improving Charge Running and the user experience. The YC accelerator, for the first time ever, has been conducted 100% virtually since summer 2020. Through a series of one-on-one meetings, workshops, demos, and group presentations, Charge was able to focus on the positive development of every runner’s experience first and foremost. Long days, lots of great work, and tons of insight and advice from some of the greatest entrepreneur minds in the world made YC a game-changing experience for Charge Running.   

Charge Running and Y Combinator!
