A bit of a controversial question - I agree.
But as an indie hacker, why are you applying for YC?
The end goal of YC is to raise a round of funding and get aboard the VC rocketship.
I am genuinely interested in the why.
I work in VC myself and organize Indie Hackers events so I have a view on both worlds. My worry is that most people have a misconception of what are the expectations of YC and just apply due to their brand.
Prove me wrong I guess?
