What's the "latest stage" startup to go through YC. I've seen a few companies that have been around for quite a while like Vayable go through YC. What's the most money raised before going through YC?

Maybe 18 months in time and a million or two in money. I don't know for sure because we don't keep records of either.

In practice, people tend to feel they're too late before they are. E.g. while a post series A company would probably feel they were too late, the number of post series A cos that would be net ahead from doing YC is probably nonzero.

It never hurts to try to get an interview anyway. Was just wondering... I guess we'll for sure apply then.

Applications are open for YC Summer 2018
