Startup accelerator Y Combinator (YC) has selected the mentors for its latest batch of Chinese startups, including executives and an academic who will coach young entrepreneurs in its winter program, our sister site TechNode Chinese reports.

The newly formed mentor team—known as Part-time Partners—consists of Huang Zheng, CEO of social e-commerce giant Pinduoduo, CEO of parental knowledge-sharing platform Babytree Group and former Yahoo and Google executive Allen Wang, as well as Professor Eric Xing from Carnegie Mellon University.

They will work with YC China’s Founding CEO Lu Qi to help mentor young Chinese entrepreneurs that have been selected for the program. Lu, an artificial intelligence expert and former Baidu executive, joined YC China in August last year. He also joined Pinduoduo’s advisory committee the same month the company went public in the US.
