Founded in 2009 by Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz, Andreessen Horowitz (known as “a16z”) is a venture capital firm in Silicon Valley, California, that backs bold entrepreneurs building the future through technology. We are stage agnostic: We invest in seed to late-stage technology companies, across the consumer, enterprise, bio/healthcare, crypto, and fintech spaces. a16z has $28.2B in assets under management across multiple funds, including the $2.9B Bio funds, the $3.1B Crypto funds, and the Cultural Leadership Fund.
We’ve established a team that is defined by respect for the entrepreneur and the entrepreneurial company building process. We’ve invested in health companies like Apeel, Akasa, Cedar, Devoted, Headway and Komodo. Our team is at the forefront of new technology, helping entrepreneurs and their companies impact and change the world.
The a16z Growth Fund, which manages more than $10 billion in assets, invests in Health companies at the intersection of computer science and health care delivery, operations and finance. We are seeking an investing associate to help support the fund’s Health investing efforts. We work collaboratively with our colleagues on the a16z Bio+Health Fund, which is an early-stage vehicle focusing on the same Health-related companies.
