not sure? take a look at the faqs.

is it this free?

yes, it is free. we're funded by a16z + ycombinator. also, we don't take any equity or any ownership at all in what you're creating. this is simply a home to build your ideas.

is this remote or irl?

it's remote for 6 weeks. it ends with a 3-day irl event in sf. if you can come, you should! if not, all good. it's optional.

when do applications end? when do I find out if i got in?

applications close june 10. season begins june 15.

wait so how do you make money!?

as of right now, we don't.

and, our goal is to never charge the user. we've made a few million dollars in the past off of affiliate links. but, now we're exploring building a product. can read more on our efforts here if curious.

what kind of ideas are accepted?

we don't care as long as it's something you're genuinely excited about. could be in robotics, ai, software, music, whatever — just apply.

what if i have a team?

applying as a team is completely okay. only one person needs to apply. let us know in your application the other people on your team.

what if i'm already working on an idea?

that's even better. you can apply with the idea you're already doing. be sure to let us know how it's going!

who can apply?

anyone. we accept people of all ages, from all over the world. totally fine if you're a student as well.

is it part-time or full-time?

depends on you! we recommend at minimum ~10-hours a week. but the more time you spend, the better.

are my expenses covered for the irl event?

no. you would be responsible for your flight + accommodations. but, don't let this hold you back from applying. the irl event is optional. you can still build great things no matter where you are.

does it have to be a brand new idea or something i am already working on?

doesn't matter if you're already working on the next big idea or in between ideas. the goal is to just ship for six weeks and iterate!

i am not in tech. can i still apply?

yes :). we started off focusing on tech projects, but, now the ecosystem is pretty diverse with artists, film makers, musicians, all types of people.

aight. just apply lol.
