Resend + Y Combinator

Our goal is to reimagine how email can be done in 2023 and beyond. With YC, we have the right partners to make this a reality.

What is Resend again?

Resend is an email API for developers. You can think of it as a next-generation Sendgrid.

Since launching 4 weeks ago, we got 4,949 people on the waitlist, and our open source project ( is already at 4,168 stars on GitHub.

Why YC?

I've always seen YC as the best startup accelerator out there. Companies like Airbnb, Stripe, Dropbox, Gitlab, Zapier, and Supabase all came out of it.

Being a part of this program with such a fantastic group of founders and partners is really special.

Together with Bu Kinoshita and Jonni Lundy, we’re participating in the Winter ‘23 batch.

This is just the beginning of a new journey and I'm looking forward to sharing every step of the way with you all!
