MITCNC Event
What it means to be a Startup Advisor
Dec 16 - Virtual Event

Join us for a candid conversation with Reshma Khilnani (Y Combinator visiting partner) and Bradley Horowitz (VP at Google, founder of Area 120) about what it means to be a startup advisor.

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.
