Technology incubator company is trying something completely different for people that are interested in applying for their startup boot camp. They are going to have a separate application for people that don’t have an idea yet. Now nothing is holding you back from becoming part of a startup. If you apply for this class batch and you seem like a good found, you will be accepted without an idea and then you can come up with one.
Y Combinator is doing this because they realized that they were already accepting people without proper ideas. Reddit started off as a service that was going to be a way to order food from a cellphone. Scribd originally started as a ride-sharing service.
Y Combinator also believes that smart people who think that they cannot come up with a good startup idea is generally mistaken. Every smart person has an idea in them. To apply without an idea, just go to http://news.ycombinator.com/apply-noidea.
