Join us to hear entrepreneur and investor, Eric Migicovsky, share his journey from becoming founder and CEO of Pebble Technology, the company behind the Pebble smart watches, to joining Y Combinator as a Partner.

While studying engineering at the University of Waterloo, Canada, Eric began building smartwatches alongside a group of friends. He founded Pebble Technology, which was accepted into the prestigious Y Combinator startup accelerator. In April 2012, Eric and his team launched Pebble on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform, where it became the most successful crowdfunded project in Kickstarter’s history. In February 2015, they launched two more watches on Kickstarter, which became the fastest funded project in Kickstarter history. In late 2016, Pebble was shut down, and the IP acquired by Fitbit.

Since January 2018, Eric has been a Partner at Y Combinator, «focused on finding, funding, and helping great founders».
