LifeLaunchr Chosen for Advisor Track at YCombinator’s Startup School

by | Aug 21, 2018

We’re really excited to share that LifeLaunchr was chosen as one among a select group of companies – out of more than 15,000 that applied – for the Advisor Track at Y Combinator’s Startup School. Startup School starts August 28, and LifeLaunchr founder Venkates Swaminathan will be part of a community of entrepreneurs who will learn from Y Combinator’s alumni advisors through online courses and virtual weekly office hours.

This is a great opportunity to learn how to scale LifeLaunchr’s virtual college admissions coaching to a much larger audience and thus to help students all over the country benefit from high-quality coaching for college and career at an affordable price.

We couldn’t have done this without the help of all our customers and partners, who have taught us what we need to focus on, and turned into advocates for us to spread the word. Thank you!!!
