Twice a year, the prestigious incubator program called Y Combinator (YC) accepts applications for aspiring entrepreneurs. Having completed the program in 2009, and now serving as a Part Time Design Partner, here's my advice to those who wish to apply. You'll want to communicate the following within your answers:
- Describe why you and your co-founders are the right team for the job. If you're a close knit unit, say so.
- Show explicitly how you're going to make revenue. Maybe you already are (say so) or have good ideas how to. Nothing beats having >$1 revenue going into the application.
- Will you pursue your idea even if you don't get accepted into YC? If yes, make it known.
Apply here. Best of luck.
