Since it has been advised to avoid public gathering, the accelerator programme decided to call off the event which was supposed to be held both for the live-studio audience and virtually on March 23 and 24. Y Combinator decided to hold the event virtually on March 23, but later decided to bring it ahead to March 16.

Y Combinator hosts its demo day for the shortlisted startups to showcase their products in front of a live audience and pitch it to investors.
