There's a wide range of things you can do to help startups, from strategic advice about fundraising to hands-on help with recruiting. Reshma and Bradley will talk through their years of experience mentoring and investing in startups and share how to make a real, meaningful impact — and what anti-patterns to avoid.
Reshma will share YC's unique approach to startup mentorship and Bradley will talk through his experiences helping many startups.
If you're currently advising startups or interested in doing so, this will be a great conversation. We also welcome founders and anyone interested in the startup ecosystem.
