Introducing Michael Seibel

Michael Seibel is a Managing Director at Y Combinator and co-founder of two startups – Justin tvTwitch and Socialcam. He first joined Y Combinator in 2013, advising hundreds of startups, and has been active in promoting diversity efforts among startup founders.

During 2012, Socialcam participated in Y Combinator, raised angel financing from a group of amazing investors, and sold to Autodesk Inc. for $60m. Needless to say – it was a busy year.

In 2005, Michael graduated from Yale University with a BA in political science. He has lived and worked in the Bay Area since 2006. 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.
