Is YCombinator’s $20k seed capital enough to keep a team of 3 founders alive in Silicon Valley during the program?

My answer to Is YCombinator’s $20k seed capital enough to keep a team of 3 founders alive in Silicon Valley during the program? on Quora

Yes—especially if the three founders live together. A three bedroom apartment near Mountain View can be had for around $3-4,000/month (just check Craigslist), which will be the bulk of your expenses. The rest can cover food, car rental and some business-related expenses (we spent some money on office chairs and a desk).
