Live Interview And Q&A – Michael Seibel, CEO & Partner at Y Combinator

About Michael Seibel

Michael Seibel is 37 years old and has lived and worked in the Bay Area since 2006. Currently, he works at Y Combinator as a full-time partner and CEO of the YC startup accelerator program. Previously, he was a co-founder and CEO of Justin.tv from 2007 – 2011 and the co-founder and CEO of Socialcam in 2012.

During 2012, Socialcam participated in Y Combinator, raised angel financing from a group of amazing investors, and sold to Autodesk Inc. for $60m (link). Needless to say – it was a busy year. In 2014, Justin.tv became Twitch Interactive and under the leadership of Emmett Shear and Kevin Lin sold to Amazon for $970m.

Before getting into tech, he spent a year as the finance director for a US Senate campaign, and before that he graduated from Yale University with a bachelor’s degree in political science. Today he spends the large majority of his free time cooking, reading, traveling, and going for long drives.
