Dream2Career Accepted into Y-Combinator Startup School
Dream2Career was accepted into Y-Combinator’s Fall Startup Class. Dream2Career recently launched Edu-Advisor, The Ultimate Training Companion, which helps students and career-seekers find and prepare for dream careers. Because Edu-Advisor offers a transformational concept in the work-learn space, the admissions office at Y-Combinator gladly admitted Dream2Career into its prestigious Bootcamp-style program.
Y-Combinator has funded many successful startups in their early stages including Airbnb, Stripe, DoorDash, and Dropbox. Based in Silicon Valley, CA they have one of the largest and most collaborative alumni networks in the industry. This community creates an environment that is conducive to learning and it supports new founders with every aspect of the start-up business. Dream2Career’s founder, Dr. Kathleen Houlihan who has over 20 years of experience in education says, “I have never experienced a more supportive and inspiring group of educators. I am certain that Dream2Career will be successful as a direct result of being involved with the Y-Combinator ecosystem.”
