The startups that are chosen to that program is fully committed and I believe they all went through hard times and worked on their dream. That's not the point. However - Microsoft asks you to spend 4 month, full time working on the project. That's how it should be to achieve your goals but still - many startups can't afford full time and need to work. Equity is not a bad word and a different business model should be considered, cause if not, than only some can get in which creates discrimination. I appreciate what Microsoft does but ask if it can be approved.

Microsofts program is an additional value, not the primary means for your startups success, that is why its called an accelerator. Every entrepreneur should be aware that he and his team are those who will make it or break it, If you need financing to work full time on your project there are many programs out there, just you will have to convince that you can't do at all without the money, and thats where the problems begin.
