U.S. based accelerator Y Combinator (YC) has hired Shanghai-born Qi Lu, former Microsoft and Baidu executive, as CEO, to develop a branch of YC to run on Chinese soil. Sam Altman, President of YC, highlights the importance of a “founder community” and states that between the US and China offices there will be visitors, shared mentors and other interaction, despite the two branches running independently of one another. YC ran a “Startup School” event in Beijing earlier this year to both recruit prospects for their American program and establish connections in the city and has determined that YC will be based in Beijing.
