Y Combinator is announcing today the addition of four new partners to its roster, as part of its larger push for more growth under new president Sam Altman.

Altman announced in a blog post this afternoon that YC’s current outreach director Kat Manalac has been promoted to take on a partner position at the organization, and joining YC as part-time partners are Stripe CEO Patrick Collison, Science Exchange CEO Elizabeth Iorns, and AeroFS CEO Yuri Sagalov. Collison, Iorns, and Sagalov are all Y Combinator alums. You can read more about the additions here.

The new additions come less than a month after Y Combinator added YC alums Justin Kan and Aaron Harris to its roster of partners. It all seems to be playing into the vision of growth that YC founder Paul Graham shared with me earlier this year, when he explained his handing over the reins to Altman: “Now that we’ve got this new structure… all we have to do is hire more partners and get more startups. We could probably grow by 10x in our current form.”

We’ll be able to hear more about Y Combinator’s growth strategy next month, when Sam Altman joins us for an on-stage discussion at Disrupt NY. You can buy your tickets here.
