Ben Horowitz: The Next Big Thing Will Be a Surprise
When Andreessen Horowitz Co-Founder Ben Horowitz took the stage at the Web 2.0 Expo Wednesday in San Francisco, he was expected to tell audience members which technologies they should invest in and which ones they should build.
Horowitz and co-founder Marc Andreessen have been investing since last year from a $650 million fund, so the audience would have loved to hear Horowitz’s opinions. But he didn’t like that idea.
