So its more of a value-added activity than anything? Seems expensive to trade 7-10% of your business in exchange of network contacts. Have you ever explored the option of making those network contacts yourself?

Edit to the reply below

I'm just curious as to what benefits you get. I know of the program. Though I'm not their target market.

Im not being pedantic, just genuinely interested in your POV.

If you think YC is just network contacts you don't know much about it. And yes, I think YC can easily add that much value back to just about any startup.
