Y Combinator 2014

We built a Silk that contains key data and visualizations about the Y Combinator Winter 2014 class. We pulled in data from Mattermark, Angel.co, and Crunchbase. We also did our own research. We visualized what percentage of YC founders are female, how many YC startups have no U.S. offices, and how much money YC W 14 class participants had already raised. Anyone can do their own research using our "Explore" mode (click the "explore" button anywhere on the page and build unique queries). Not all YC W 14 startups have posted their information in CrunchBase or other places so we'll continue to update this site.
