The YC Board of Overseers

I’m delighted to announce the new Board of Overseers for Y Combinator.

The members are: Brian Chesky, Adora Cheung, John Collison, Patrick Collison, Drew Houston, Jessica Livingston, David Rusenko, Emmett Shear, and me.

I’ve worked with everyone on this list.  They are all great and care deeply about YC—we're very lucky to have them.  They'll help ensure YC thrives for a long time.

The Board will be responsible for hiring and firing the YC President, and occasionally helping with strategic direction.  Hopefully it doesn’t have to meet very often.
