I am a founder of a billion dollar mobile gaming company - one of the first female founders with that exit, but I won’t be the last. We exited in 2017 to Netmarble and FoxNext. I went to work at YC as a Visiting Partner getting unparalleled access to amazing talent - identifying top founders, working with top founders, and advising top founders. Not only was I able to get access but I was able to learn what the world's top founders do well.
My dealflow comes not only from the YC community but also personal networks of second time founders and from the female founder communities to which I participate in.
