Venture firm Andreessen Horowitz shared 16 things that will shape how we think about technology - and the world - in 2015. These trends include important themes in financial innovation, from widespread adoption of blockchain technology to re-imagining the beloved insurance or credit rating industry thanks in large part to machine learning and big data analytics.
We don’t invest in themes; we invest in special founders with breakthrough ideas. Which means we don’t make investments based on a pre-existing thesis about a category. That said, here are a few of the things we’ve been observing or thinking about; we’re especially grateful to our founders/companies, and the entrepreneurs we meet with everyday, for their insights here.
