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, is seeking an investing partner to help lead the fund’s Crypto investing effort from early growth stage through public companies.

We work collaboratively with our colleagues on the Crypto Fund, the firm’s vertical-specific vehicle.
