Aaron will cover some of the myths that exist around starting startups, what you should do while you’re still in school if you want to start a company, and he’ll talk about how YC can help you get started.
Simon Borrero is the founder of Rappi. Rappi is a marketplace that connects users who want to purchase prepared foods, groceries, clothes, and more with contractors who fulfil them. Think of Rappi as a Doordarsh meets Delivery meets Instacart. Simon will talk about their startup journey and YC experience.
Treble Founders, Felipe Otalora and Sebastian Valencia will be moderating the audience Q&A where Aaron and Simon will also spend time answering your questions.
