One of the largest venture capital companies in the whole world, Andreessen Horowitz, has just announced the launch of a new project, a startup school that will be focused on developing the skills of entrepreneurs that want to create crypto projects.
The announcement was made this week at the TechCrunch Disrupt event, a prominent tech summit that happens in San Francisco. Chris Dixon, one of the general partners at Andreessen Horowitz, affirmed that it is his goal to help entrepreneurs that want to apply their knowledge to the industry. He said that he is not looking for equity in the firms, only to teach them how to succeed in the field.
According to Dixon, the company is going to use everything that the team learned in the last seven years about this industry and pass it to the newer generation of entrepreneurs.
Surprisingly, the service will be free of charge. He only “hopes” that companies who are successful think about possible investments from the venture capital company, that he stated that this is not a requirement. People will learn the lessons and then be free to do whatever they want to. Obviously, only very promising people will be accepted into the school.
Andreessen Horowitz is investing a lot in the crypto space lately. Some months ago, his company was able to launch a $300 million USD fund that would be used to invest in crypto companies. Companies such as Ripple, MakerDAO, and Anchorage have already received investments.
