What is Y Combinator?

In 2009, according to Paul Graham, Y Combinator (YC) was neither a venture capital firm nor an incubator. In fact, there was not yet a name for what Y Combinator was trying to create.

Instead of raising a large amount of capital to invest into small number of deals, YC was investing a small amount into a relatively large number of companies.
