Winter 2013 applications weren't 6 months ago. One of the things we realized after starting YC is that January and June are 5 months apart, not 6. So we have 2 more months between batches in the fall. That's why Startup School is in the fall.



Random question:

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?


Both are true. A lot of investors travel in August, but I've heard a significant number now arrange their trips so as to be in town for Demo Day.

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>
