SO what. Wanna start a software or Internet company?

Fear Not! Now there’s not one, not two, but THREE venture capital firms that are offering the opportunity to people that might otherwise be clueless.
It started with YCombinator but has now been expanded [copied?] to TechStars and even YEurope. Early stage specialists with the idea that providing more support (housing, consultants, pocket cash, introductions to investors) than liquid might actually be the way to get a company on its feet. Think about your idea. Then think some more. Then apply. That’s right… apply. There’s no business plan slash pitch meeting it’s straight question and answer… If you have a great product or idea the passion will be there and you could very well be on your way to one of three “startup camps” to get to work.

MY idea? Oh, I totally want to produce a documentary and follow a company through the entire process. You already know I have an affection for Justin.tv who is funded by YCombinator, but check out some of their other young ducklings that are being nursed to health in SF, Colorado and Vienna. I bet you can do it too.
