Click for San Francisco, California Forecast

San Francisco, USA

 

Majority of YC companies are located in San Francisco

Y Combinator is one of the most successful startup incubator today. It has funded over 200 companies since its inception in 2005. I have done a mini-survey from a list of companies funded in 2009 and 2010 to find out where these companies are located.

It turns out the largest group do not have an office address. They are probably very small company without employees, working out from home or someplace. Otherwise the top location is San Francisco where about 1/3 companies are located. Mountain View, the home base of Y Combinator, comes in a distant second at 7%. Not counting those without an address, there are 29 companies in San Francisco versus 22 in the rest of the countries.

Location Num Pct
Unknown 4144.6%
San Francisco 2931.5%
Mountain View 66.5%
Other 66.5%
Palo Alto 44.3%
Sunnyvale 33.3%
Other Bay Area 33.3%

Finding the address is harder than it sounds. For example, for a company that has already received 5M in funding, Hipmunk still does not list an office address. I searched for the information from crunchbase first, then from the company's website. One of the best place to find its location is actually in the company's jobs page. You ready have to tell people where your office is if you are asking them to come to work for you.
