Do you know where these unicorns AirBnB, Dropbox, Reddit (#6 most visited website in the world), etc. were incubated?

Yes, it is Y Combinator (YC) www.ycombinator.com !  A very successful seed accelerator found by Paul Graham and a few friends in the States in 2005.

We are organizing a YC Sharing and Mingling Event on September 28 (Friday) at our campus in Central and hope you can join us!

It will be a great opportunity to meet some of the YC Graduates and listen to their sharing, as well as to make some new friends in the UST communities. 

Participants include UST alumni and UST Startups Founders, so it will be a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends in a relaxing environment on a Friday evening!
