Remember that time that Forever Labs was asked to join Y Combinator? I do and I'm finally ready to talk about it with Hubski. TLDR - It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

I just finished going through the worlds most famous tech incubator, Y Combinator. Feel free to ask me questions about it, if you'd like.

Here's a photo of my partners in crime, mk, ecib and me:

Here's a photo of some amazing founders we became close with:

Guggy

Dropleaf

Alpine Roads

Our Advisor, Geoff Ralston - Greatest human being ever.

What is great about YC is that it is never really "over." You are always alum.

Now we are raising a round of financing. Wish us luck!!

veen:

Good luck with financing! Go and rock their casbah. (You know, I never knew it was casbah. I always thought they just said cas-tle in a weird way.)

QUESTION TIMEEE

What do you do all day? I assume you work on building / refining FL with the YC advisers, but there's probably more to it than that.

What's the best advice you've gotten? Did you ever drastically change course?

What's the story you'll tell your grandkids?

How did you guys decide to go for YC?

Did you find any 'unknown unknowns', i.e. some aspect of building FL that you had never thought about before?
