The YC Board of Overseers

by Sam Altman6/3/2014

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

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.
