VC Partner @ Andreessen Horowitz in Menlo Park, CA

We’re hiring our first Deal Partner for American Dynamism. The American Dynamism practice invests in founders and companies that support the national interest, including but not limited to aerospace, defense, education, housing, public safety, supply chain, industrials and manufacturing. We believe dynamic companies are founded by mission-driven founders and often transcend verticals and business models in their quest to solve important national problems. These companies view government as a key stakeholder, competitor or customer—and the success of these companies affects the flourishing of all Americans. We believe strongly that these companies exist in all 50 states, as there is no center of gravity for solving America’s biggest problems.

In addition to the details in the posting below, we ask all candidates email with answer this question:

What is American Dynamism and what early-stage companies exemplify it?
