A few weeks ago, kokoinai and I applied to YCombinator
for "venture capital" funding of LifeThunder. I use the quotes because YC doesn't really do VC in the traditional sense; they invest $17,000 in a 2-person startup (like us), and their value is more on the business and networking side.
It's a four stage process:
2) Hear back that you have been invited to demo for them
3) Hear back that you have been accepted for investment
(Ok, step 4 may not *necessarily* follow....)
Today is the day that we hear whether or not we've been invited to demo. And no, I'm not compulsively checking all three of my email accounts (since I forget which one I gave them). I mean, after all, they're in CA and therefore 3 hours earlier than me. It's 11am here, so they are probably just getting started with the final reading of applications.
Huh, I wonder if the email came in since I started writing this....<click>
