If you’re reading this, you’re probably applying to Y Combinator. That’s great news!  

We created the Future Africa Y Combinator Application Guide to help you increase your chances of getting accepted. In this guide you’ll get Africa specific advice from YC partner, Kat Mañalac, on what YC looks for, what excites them about African startups, and how to frame your market/startup for YC. We also brought together 10+ African YC alumni to share their insider knowledge, tips, and accepted applications.

We hope this guide helps you apply to YC with confidence.

Share this guide with African founders you know.

Let’s go!
