YC Meetup on Building Open Source Software Startups


YC's office @ Union Square, San Francisco


Tuesday, April 11 at 5:00 PM PT


Y Combinator is hosting a small reception for people who are interested in the growing trend of Open Source Software startups. Y Combinator has funded over 75 OSS companies and we’re especially excited about them.

If you’re interested in maybe starting an open source company someday, this is a good opportunity to get to know some of the top founders in this area and hear the latest best practices.

We’ll host a panel with:
Solomon Hykes, co-founder of Docker and Dagger
Matt DeBergalis, co-founder of Apollo GraphQL (valued over $1B)
Umur Cubukcu, co-founder of Citus Data (acquired by Microsoft) and now Visiting Group Partner at Y Combinator
Reshma Khilnani, co-founder of MedPlum and former Visiting Group Partner at Y Combinator

and also a short talk from Daniel Gackle who runs Hacker News.

After the panel we’ll have a cocktail reception. We’ve invited many other founders of YC Open Source Software companies so you can get to know them 1-1. YC Group Partners will be around if you want to bounce around ideas about possible startups.

We have limited space and expect the event to be over-subscribed. Please complete the form below, and we’ll reach out if we can offer you a spot at the event.
