Andreessen Horowitz Preparing To Raise $900 Million

Posted Oct 27, 2011

Andreessen Horowitz is preparing to raise $900 million for their newest fund, known as Fund III. The company’s first fund was worth about $300 million. The company used that funding to put money into Skype and Fusion.io. In late 2010, Andreessen Horowitz raised $650 million for Fund II. They used this fund to invest in Airbnb, Twitter, Facebook, and Zynga. Now the company is preparing to raise $900 million, which means that the company will have $2.15 billion in assets to distribute to companies. Andreesen Horowitz has invested in about 70 companies. The new fund will be used to make investments from between $10,000 to $100 million. [Uncrunched]
