I have some questions that may or may not be stupid.

1. What's YC S17? A Y Combinator funding cycle? What's Y Combinator? I see the Wikipedia article, and I can read English, but I still don't really understand. Is it venture capital, or is that description too elementary?

2. Are there current uses for young blood stem cells, or is this hedging bets on future applications?

3. Does this mean I can stop murdering teenagers for their blood? This will save me a fortune on laundry detergent.

4. Are you operating in Wisconsin?

yc seeds various startups every year, with mostly superb results. basically if you can convince yc you're worth something, you're gold. this is massive news for mk and co.

1. Wikipedia is your friend.

2. Both. Have a listen to this interview we did. Will answer.

3. Yes, please stop.

4. No, but Ann Arbor isn't too far away...
