Hi everyone, We put together a map that shows where YC companies are from. It’s based on the location of the founders before applying for YC. As a founder and previous YC applicant, I know how daunting the application process can be, especially, when you are far away from San Francisco. I’m originally from Madrid and I experienced this feeling first-hand. Being able to reach out to YC founders from your country and hear about their experience can really make a difference. Unfortunately, this information wasn’t readily available at the time. Now that I work for YC, I wanted to help build this. You can click on your country (or nearby ones) to find alumni. You can check the full story behind it here: http://blog.ycombinator.com/yc-w... Any feedback is appreciated! Thank you

@ramonrecuero India--> ZipPhone -- Site seems to have malware. Unless that's their business model. Also, India--> TapToLearn - When you click on the iTunes listings, I get a blank page.

@ramonrecuero You left the entire country of New Zealand off your world map. Are you trolling New Zealanders? :)

Would be nice to be able to click on Israel without having to zoom in 5 levels on the map

Just FYI that Singapore is missing in the map 😅

This is pretty neat! I think it would help if you can list founders' Twitter handles for every company. Reaching out to them would be second in my list after sorting the startups based on location which it serves well.

@tmatthewj thank you, that's a great idea

This is cool! By the way, I think you're missing some Croatian and Slovenian companies - @GetBellaBeat, @PovioLabs, @DoubleRecall.

Thank you, Benjamin. It is not an exhaustive list but we'll do our best to keep it as accurate as possible
