In 2015, the venture firm Andreessen Horowitz launched a $200 million fund located in Menlo Park, CA, to invest in software, biology, and medicine, led by its ninth general partner, Vijay Pande. The Official name of the fund is AH Bio Fund I LP . The fund gathered $200M (18 Nov 2015) from 67 investors .

AH Bio Fund II, L.P is a venture capital fund located in Menlo Park, CA that invests in early-stage healthcare-focused information technology companies. This Andreessen Horowitz sponsored fund is led by Vijay Pande, the chair of Stanford University's chemistry department. The fund is an extension of the firm's early-stage information technology investment program, but differs in its focus on the healthcare sector.



The focus is in computational biomedicine, applying AI and ML to diagnostics and therapeutics; new bio utilities or tools that make it easier to "read", "write" or edit and synthesize DNA, as well as making advances in bioengineering itself.

Investments

AH Bio Fund I LP

This fund focuses on software companies built to enable and address biotech ideas. It makes roughly one Series A investment and 2-3 seed investments each quarter, on pace with other general partners at Andreessen Horowitz. The fund works closely with Y Combinator.

AH Bio Fund II

AH Bio Fund II invests in software companies which can benefit from the reduction in the costs of data storage, computational power, sensors to measure biological data, and genetic sequencing. AH Bio Fund II has identified computational biomedicine, new scientific utilities, and network effects in healthcare as areas of specific investment interest.

Organization

As a venture capital firm, Andreesen 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 Andreesen Horowitz’s portfolio.

Executive Briefing Center

Andreessen Horowitz also operates a facility that allows their portfolio companies to connect and network with established enterprises, called the Executive Briefing Center. The Executive Briefing Center is based both in California and New York. Established enterprises, who have been identified by their portfolio companies as potential customers, are invited to the center for a networking and presentation session of these companies’ products and services. For the established businesses in attendance, the session is an opportunity for them to be informed of the latest developments in their area of interest, alongside building possible partnerships with the presenting startups.
