I applied for YC with my SaaS startup. My co-founder and I spent hours doing paperwork and preparing for our final pitch. Although we learned from the process, it’s a tedious one that has deterred us from applying again. Since then, we’ve moved to a customer-funded model that has helped us grow immensely. Looking forward to sharing and receiving advice from other rejected founders in rally!

My startup applied to YC a few times and got rejected on all three. It was a draining process, affected the team morale greatly, and the lack of feedback from our YC interviewers made it difficult to continue. Just joined this community and I’ve already got some feedback related to my venture and made new connections. Would highly recommend you join rally!

THE STORY OF RALLY

Two university students aspiring to be startup founders.

With a substantial increase submissions to Y combinator, it's harder than ever to get accepted. The road to success is a long one, and a rejection is just a bump in the road. After being isolated through these difficult times, it’s time to rally together a community of rejected founders to empower and support one another.

While top tier accelerators produce unicorns, they're not the only route to success. Recognizing that YCombinator can feel like the only route to success for founders, we see this misconception as an opportunity to build a community where rejected founders can explore alternate growth avenues together.
