(Wow, it doesn't even seem like the Winter 2013 were 6 months ago yet. I wonder how much the reduction in class size (previously discussed on HN) will affect YC S13.)
Demo day for summer YC is towards the end of August.
I've heard anecdotally that many investors travel during August, and that it is a poor time to fundraise.
But I've also heard that many investors come to Demo Day.
Is the anecdotal information that I heard incorrect?
Whatever the cause, there's no observable difference between the amount that gets raised by summer and winter batches.
Yay! I am just 27, non-achiever and already knew that! :) </joke>
I'd imagine n is going to get larger over time for us before we can prove ourselves worthy, but we'll keep applying. In retrospect, I think it'll be fun to look back at all our applications and see what progress we've made and how our idea changes over time. If anything, we'll have a clear message by then. ;-)
