Y Combinator's moving further up the funnel to educate and identify great founders and companies in a semi-scalable way.

@rrhoover thanks very much for supporting us, Ryan! Your vote and comment mean a lot to us! Happyyyyy! It was my first time being a maker on Product Hunt. I should have my post hunted by the Top Hunter but I did not know, so I hunted it myself. I will learn the process better next time :)
