Startups are hard. I hope you'll keep going in the face of adversity.
If so, Mixpanel is here to help. Forward a copy of your YC rejection email to email@example.com and we'll hook you up with our $150/month Startup plan, free forever.
Thanks for offering this! Doesn't feel as much like rejection any more ;)
Don't worry, the good angel won the battle, but uhhh, I hope you're doing something to verify email headers and all that jazz. If it had been the $350 plan, I don't know that I could have held out.
To anybody wondering whether or not you actually need this offer (and is legitimately eligible), jump on it now. I picked up an old Mixpanel plan on an AppSumo deal with no idea how to use it whatsoever, and it's now used integrally in a variety of projects.
Not all rejection is "adversity" per se, but a lot of people had a non-negligible amount of hope resting on their YC applications. At this stage in the game everything that isn't a giant step forward can feel like a kick in the face. Kudos to Mixpanel for understanding that.
