Y Combinator is now accepting applications for the 2007 Winter Founders Program, which will be taking place back in Mountain View, CA, from January through March. The deadline is October 18, and it’s better to get applications in ASAP.

We have absolutely no regrets about leaving our 9-5’s to join the Winter Founder’s Program. Sure, money is tight for a few months, but the knowledge and connections gained are well worth it. And when it’s over, you’ll be well on your way to running a business.

Some words of advice for giving your application a fighting chance: 1) Follow the instructions exactly. Don’t try to be a hero. 2) Give examples of what you can do. These people get really excited about smart people who actually get things done. 3) Really love what you’re proposing, because you’re going to get a lot of face time with it. If it’s not something you’re passionate about, it’s not something you’re going to build well or fast.
