Randall Stross - The Launch Pad: Inside Y Combinator, Silicon Valley’s Most Exclusive School for Startups

Colfax Avenue: Acclaimed journalist Randall Stross will discuss and sign his new book The Launch Pad: Inside Y Combinator, Silicon Valley’s Most Exclusive School for Startups (Penguin). Investment firm Y Combinator is the most sought-after home for startups in Silicon Valley. Twice a year, it funds dozens of just-founded startups and provides three months of guidance from Paul Graham, YC’s impresario and his partners. The Launch Pad is the definitive story of a seismic shift that’s occurred in the business world, in which coding skill trumps employment experience, pairs of undergraduates confidently take on Goliaths, tiny startups working out of an apartment scale fast, and investors fall in love.
