Y Combinator is one of the biggest startup accelerator in Silicon Valley, and it’s well known for most of the startups all over the world.
From this article, it’s interesting to know that they have an internal platform called Bookface only for the Y Combinator alumni where anyone can ask questions to previous founders.
At the beginning of the year, one of the founders from the latest Y Combinator batch asked the following question.
1. What are some things that you should’ve known as a first-time founder but did not?
2. How did you learn them?
3. How did they help?
It got a lot of attention, and many founders answered. Y Combinator decided to publish all the answers in this blog post, and I think for everyone who is interested in the startup world should read these answers from other startup founders.
