Co-Founder and General Partner
Andreessen is one of the few to achieve the trifecta: pioneer a software category used by more than a billion people, establish multiple billion-dollar companies, and launch an influential venture capital company.
He co-created the Mosaic Internet browser and co-founded Netscape, which later sold to AOL for $4.2 billion. He co-founded Loudcloud, which sold to Hewlett-Packard for $1.6 billion. He is now a co-founder and general partner of Andreessen Horowitz, a venture capital firm with $1.2 billion to give away to technology companies.
His Bachelor of Science degree in computer science is from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where there is a plaque in his honor.
