I have a couple of questions:

- How open is Ycom to applications if all you're coming with is an idea, and no proof of concept?

- Is it true that there's an age bias?




We're fine with just an idea.

There's an age bias in that our standards get higher as the founders get older. You can't reasonably expect a 19 year old to have achieved as much as a 35 year old. But there's no sudden cutoff.

Since Bill Gates is unlikely to apply to YC, what are YC's expectations regarding older founders?
