With demo day approaching next Tuesday, Y Combinator partner Jessica Livingston sent out a stern reminder to investors that Y Combinator won’t tolerate any inappropriate behavior:
Y Combinator has a zero tolerance policy for inappropriate sexual or romantic behavior from investors toward founders.
Don’t even think about doing it. I will find out. Y Combinator will not continue to work with you.
News also travels fast around the YC community. Past and future YC alumni will likely find out about your actions and find them equally unacceptable.
I’m not a big fan of threats, but this is one I can get behind. Apparently, so can most people:
