    The valuation of Y Combinator companies was over $150 Billion as of October 2019, totally. In their own words:

    “Twice a year, we invest a small amount of money in a large number of startups. We have two batches per year – one from January through March and one from June through August.”

    This batch took place 30 times until now. The latest one was in Winter 2020. We analyzed 2,212 companies funded by Y Combinator from 2005 to 2020.

    Thank you for this thorough evaluation. I have always been fascinated by Paul Graham. I think he is a highly under-rated VC and visionary.
