Human Factor.

The audio-documentary by UPCOMINGVC®

A Human-Centric View Of The Y Combinator Experience.

With the support of

✨ The Story. ✨

This is not a podcast. It is an audio-documentary on the Human.

Y Combinator has funded nearly 2,000 startups since its inception in 2005. The value of its portfolio is believed to exceed $ 150 billion with Tech icons like Airbnb, Coinbase, Dropbox, Stripe, Twitch.

Growth. MRR. Retention. Cohort. Pitch. Iteration. Shipper. Market size. Dilution. SAFEs. Valuation. Literature, blog posts, tweets, podcasts abound on these subjects at the heart of the entrepreneur's attention, selected to join YC to confront relentlessly for three months her ideas, her product, her execution to the reality of her sometimes still unknown market.

On the other hand, how to understand the impact on human relations of these twelve weeks of relentless business acceleration that has no equivalence? What definition(s) do humans take in this race for hypergrowth? What does the entrepreneur learn about herself? How does she struggle with or against her doubts? What psychological mechanism(s) are tested, weakened or strengthened?

Through four episodes, this audio-documentary, as close as possible to the "YC" reality that fifteen French entrepreneurs experienced, will bring us insight and answers to understand the place of Human-centric relationships when a YC Alumnus interacts with

EP #1: her Teammates & Co-Founders,
EP #2: Y Combinator Partners, Alumni, Batchmates,
EP #3: her Users and
EP #4: Venture Capitalists.
