I am confused why there are no simple and transparent answers. Such as, what is the success or failure rate of startups in each class? Can’t this be clearly posted by Ycombinator and others? I often hear this comment; define success or failure. I think it’s fair but that could be simply stated, posted and then modified as needed. An example of that would be the list attached. Adding fields such as Employee payout or other key metrics that people would like to know or ask for. If it’s so great. Publish it!
I am open to the discussion. Let’s see the metrics and the transparency.
