Ask HN: PPP for New Startups
2 points by throwppp 47 days ago | hide | past | favorite
PPP is design to relieve existing businesses. How about new startups?

Covid has been going for ~1y now, and launching a startup has never been harder.

Can founders of a new startup, without prior salary history, apply for PPP? (And what about those who took a salary cut in 2020 for their startup, are they forced into the same cut into 2021?)

Assuming we can find the legal corner case, do you think it's ethically ok? (A lot of people are struggling hard, startup is also kind of a choice.)

Applications are open for YC Summer 2021
