Introducing the YC Summer ‘22 Batch

Published on Oct 6, 2022

We're thrilled to announce that over 20 Y Combinator companies from the Summer 2022 batch have now launched on Wefunder.

Now anyone can invest as little as $100 in YC Summer ‘22 companies.

What is Y Combinator?

Y Combinator is the most prestigious startup accelerator in the world, known for successes including Airbnb, Stripe, Coinbase, Cruise, Doordash, Dropbox, Reddit, and Twitch. Over 3,500 companies from YC have been funded with a combined valuation of almost $1 Trillion

Why this is exciting

Before Wefunder changed the legislation in 2016, only wealthy and well-connected investors had the opportunity to invest in Y Combinator companies and what they believed could be "the next Airbnb."

Today, anyone, regardless of background, connections, or income, will have the opportunity to invest in startups from YC’s Summer 2022 Batch.
