Advice for Y Combinator applicants

27 Sep, 2014

Hoover gives three pieces of advice to a Y Combinator hopeful who wrote to him:

– Be honest and real. The partners will know if you’re bullshitting.

– Know your metrics. Be able to describe which ones are most important and why.

– Describe how your startup can become a billion dollar business, but don’t try to fit a square peg in a round hole. Think big and be pragmatic.
