As a venture capital firm, AndreesenAndreessen Horowitz’s organizational structure is generally comprised of board partners, special advisors, operations team, and a group of in-house service specialists. The firm uses a Hollywood talent agency Creative Artists Agency model. Instead of having industry specific general partners, general partner works on behalf of all its portfolio companies. The in-house service specialists – whose skillset ranges from business development to recruiting – are meant to dispense their expertise to companies in AndreesenAndreessen Horowitz’s portfolio.

Andreessen Horowitz Crypto Startup School

Announced in November, 2019, Andreessen Horowitz offers a free crypto startup school. They opened the applications during their announcement, for which they hoped to see 20 to 25 teams or approximately 40 participants. The program, held at their Menlo Park offices, is seven weeks long, and will include technologists and investors from the crypto currency space. The first program starts February 21, 2020 and finishes April 3, 2020.



During the seven weeks, participants can expect to receive 12 to 15 hours of lectures, workshops, mentorship and networking opportunities per week. The courses outlined include:

  • What are Crypto Networks, and Why Do They Matter?
  • Blockchain Computing Primitives: Cryptography and Consensus
  • Overview of Application Development Tools
  • Applications: Today and 2025
  • Crytpo Business Models
  • Cryptoeconomics
  • UX, Product Development and Security
  • Go-to-Market Strategy and Developer Relations
  • Community Participation and Governance
  • Regulatory Landscape and Considerations
  • Guide to Fundraising

At the end of the course, Participants showcase a project idea or prototype during a demo day. Participating in the program does not guarantee an investment from Andreessen Horowitz, nor do they take any equity for participating. 



For those interested, but unable to move or spend a couple of month in Menlo Park, Andreessen Horowitz has said they will record all lectures, and the recordings along with curriculum materials will be made available later.
