As venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz* turns five years old this summer, its founding members Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz have posted a two part podcast proclaiming to “explain everything.”
Okay so maybe they don’t touch on “everything,” but they do their best, explaining the backlash against Clay Christensen’s disruption theory (“Intellectualism at its worst,” says Horowitz), what their firm looks for in entrepreneurs (“Courage.” Also don’t focus on your peers’ valuations; it’s the “most meaningless thing to focus your mind on imaginable”), plus bitcoin, education, robotics, the tech “bubble,” electric cars, and health-care. Did I miss anything?
