In 2005, Y Combinator developed a new model of startup funding. Twice a year we invest a small amount of money ($14-20k + an $80k note) in a large number of startups (most recently 68). The startups move to Silicon Valley for 3 months, during which we work intensively with them to get the company into the best possible shape and refine their pitch to investors. Each cycle culminates in Demo Day, when the startups present their business plans to a carefully selected, invite-only audience. But YC doesn't end on Demo Day.

These headsets measure electrical signals from your brain and determine two main metrics: attention and meditation. The charts and graphs in the headset's app worked well enough for measuring attention, but the very nature of meditation is that you can't focus on charts and graphs while doing it.

If you've watched our video from today, you've caught a glimpse of the saga that was our attempt to buy and then subsequently sell a Bitcoin at SXSW. In retrospect, it wasn't a very bright idea. But we were curious, not only of the prospect of using cyptocurrency as a fungible good for making purchases, but also of the promised ability to turn Bitcoin into real cash dollars.
