Welcome Daniel, Nicole, Stephanie, Steven and Tatyana!

by Michael Seibel1/10/2017

We’re excited to welcome five new members of the YC team:

Daniel Gross is joining YC as a Partner. Daniel co-founded Greplin (YC W10), a search engine that let users find content across their online accounts (Gmail, Dropbox, Salesforce, etc). In 2012, the company renamed itself to Cue and launched additional predictive search features. Cue was acquired by Apple in 2013, where Daniel continued to lead ML efforts across iOS and OS X for three years. Daniel is also an angel investor in Cruise, Gusto, Color, Triplebyte, Forward, TrendMD and others. An avid runner, Daniel’s ambition is to beat both Turing tests: in machine intelligence and the lesser known marathon time.

Nicole Cadman is joining us as Associate General Counsel. Previously she was a Managing Associate in Orrick’s Technology Companies Group, and she has a JD from Stanford Law School. Nicole ran both the Boston and Budapest marathons in 2016—the latter two days before starting at YC. She loves to swim.

Stephanie Simon is joining YC as Admissions Manager. Most recently she was building software at Earnest. Prior to that, she was cofounder and CEO of Murmur, a local recommendation app. She also likes naming companies and products, and has won some awards for it. She graduated from Scripps College and sings/plays guitar in the band The Long Walk.

Steven Chan is coming on board as YC’s Office Manager, working on the operations and software team. He is a self-taught photographer and designer from NYC where he’s worked with clients like Airbnb, Hackers of NY, and Startup Weekend. He previously cofounded an education nonprofit while in undergrad. Steven holds a BS in Applied Psychology from NYU.

Tatyana Veremyova is joining as Finance Controller. Prior to YC, she spent years consulting with startups on finance and HR topics. She has a BS degree in Economics. She enjoys reading, traveling, studying languages, psychology and dance.
