Every batch, we invite founders and executives to advise YC companies as Visiting Group Partners. These advisors bring valuable insights and recent operational experience to YC’s early-stage companies. Throughout the batch, they take on a variety of responsibilities, including application reading, interviews, group office hours, individual office hours, demo day prep, and more. Welcome to JJ, Liz, Pete, and Puneet. And  to Divya, Ashu, Tom, and Rich who joined us after the W22 Visiting Group Partners were announced.
