Hello everyone!

As you know our law firm supports ambitious founders from Poland and CEE heading to Silicon Valley. Our engagement over 10+ years with our clients has helped our law firm grow and allowed us to understand the magic of Silicon Valley and why it is the heart of innovation in the world.

We want to help the new generation of Polish and CEE entrepreneurs get this experience and change the trajectory of their ventures, so we decided to help startups get into YC W2021 batch.

When we say we decided to help, we mean don’t just review your application. Our goal is at least 3 new YC-backed companies for Poland and CEE. We’ll work on your product and hypotheses, on the application, the interview and when you get to YC — we’ll work on getting the most out of this unique experience, including introductions to top tier investors.

Post online application we will assemble panels of YC alums and top tier investors to work on your mock YC interview. Finally, we will angel invest in the best teams that get into YC through our help.

To avoid doubt, it’s free and without equity. We are just giving back.

We only have 4 requirements for candidates:
— good English;
— DREAM BIG;
— coachability;
— promise to give back to the community.

If you are interested please email us at office@cytlaw.com and answer the following questions in the email:

  • Company url, if any:
  • Describe your company in 50 characters or less. *
  • What is your company going to make?
  • Why are you the best founders to work on this project? *
  • How far along are you? *
  • Why do you want to get into YC? *
  • Why is your country cool? *

If you know founders/entrepreneurs that would be interested in this — tag them in the comments too.

We are planning to make a choice by September 1, as the deadline to apply for Y Combinator is September 23th.
