In association with Ingressive, Cranium one will be hosting a fireside chat with Qasar Younis partner, and COO of Y Combinator - ‘the world’s most successful incubator’ on Tuesday the 27th of September.
Discussion topics will be focused on - what the commonalities are amongst successful tech startups, how startups can best position themselves for investment with Y Combinator. The future of the African tech ecosystem and how entrepreneurs can imbibe the Silicon valley ethos into their businesses.
Qasar Younis was an engineer at GM for 5 years and Bosch for 2 years before going to graduate school. After leaving Harvard Business School he moved to San Francisco to start his second startup TalkBin. A platform for customers to give feedback to small and medium-sized businesses.
The company graduated from Y Combinator's 2011 class and was acquired by Google that year. After the TalkBin acquisition, Younis continued advising other startups, particularly through Y-Combinator. In early 2013, he became a part-time partner at YC. In 2014 he joined Y Combinator full time and in 2015 he was promoted to COO.
