A while ago we applied for the summer 2020 batch of Y Combinator with our FIXDIT project. Alas, we didn’t make the cut from the thousands of startups that applied.
While that of course is a total bummer, the whole process did allow us to revisit the whole project, look at it with fresh eyes and come up with some new perspectives and ideas, which I think has generally strenghtened the project. It also allowed us to try a few new things and approaches that will serve us very well going forward from here.
This is just to say that when you put yourself into play, even if you hit the wall, there is an opportunity to reflect and learn that will ultimately get you to the other side in a better and stronger shape.
