  • Moore's Law transformed computing through decreased costs, but Eroom’s Law -- “Moore” spelled backwards -- is the opposite: Much of the costs in bio (drugs etc.) have been exponentially increasing in cost. So where do the two meet? And what are the possibilities that come from applying cheaper faster computation to the extraordinary rising costs of healthcare? credits: historical clips of Gordon ...

  • Some of the big headlines hitting in healthcare recently have been all around consolidation in the industry: Walmart and Humana, Aetna and CVS, Amazon, JP Morgan and Berkshire Hathaway. In this hallway conversation, a16z's bio team -- general partners Jorge Conde and Vijay Pande, and Jeffrey Low -- discuss what might be going on as we begin to see increased vertical integration in the entire value...

  • We're beginning to see forces of biology coming into computer science -- and vice versa. The creation of each new technology enables a tool, a therapy, or a diagnostic: a cell, a protein, even an app. The chronology that facilitates this can seem perhaps straightforward in steps, but underneath lies pretty complex process. a16z general partners Vijay Pande and Jorge Conde give a quick overview in...

  • Hypothesis, test, revise -- that's science. Engineering, however, doesn't quite go that way: You have parts you know and understand (like legos), and then you use those parts to design and build something (like bridges). But the key is that when science -- time-consuming, unpredictable, slow/expensive -- becomes more like engineering -- faster, more methodical/repeatable, cheaper, etc. -- you can ...

  • As the API or "application programming interface" becomes the primary interface for business (in much the same way physical storefronts gave way to applications and websites), we're seeing a new chapter in the story of software emerge. While it's playing out against the backdrop of other trends (microservices, software-defined networking, developers as buyers, and connectivity as a utility), the b...

  • "Everyone loves to see a good fight", observes a16z partner Connie Chan, so the world -- and countless media covers across decades -- often pit the us vs. them narrative of "China vs. the U.S." as a zero-sum game: If one wins, the other loses. But in our connected world, this mindset is too simplistic not to mention backwards-looking, given how innovation there is playing out today... Chan shares...

  • What is a sales channel? It’s a route to market for a product or set of products, from a website to a sophisticated sales force. Selecting the right channel is critical for any business -- products often fail because the company chose the wrong route to market -- but when designing a distribution strategy, one should never begin with the sales channel itself. A properly designed sales channel, sha...

  • In this update of his past presentations on Mobile Eating the World -- delivered most recently at The Guardian's Changing Media Summit -- a16z’s Benedict Evans takes us through how technology is universal through mobile. How mobile is not a subset of the internet anymore. And how mobile (and accompanying trends of cloud and AI) is also driving new productivity tools. In fact, mobile -- which enc...

  • Network effects. It’s one of the most important concepts for business in general and especially for tech businesses, as it’s the key dynamic behind many successful software-based companies. Understanding network effects not only helps build better products, but it helps build moats and protect software companies against competitors’ eating away at their margins. Yet what IS a network effect? How...

  • When self-driving fleets become the dominant way of getting from point A to point B, what will the "rules of the road" be? How could autonomy and self-driving cars affect organizations and government regulatory processes like the DMV? How could this all affect the justice system -- in both big and small ways, from crimes to resources spent on traffic violations? Frank Chen (head of research, dea...

How will we get the energy we need, how much more will we need, how will it all be stored and distributed? And how will it change global economies??

But how and when do we think this will actually happen? Frank Chen (head of research, deal, and inv...

  • Traditional banking services have fallen flat for an enormous segment of the population -- whether because they’re “unbanked,” or because the state of those services makes it even more expensive to be poor. Why are so many low-income populations -- both in the U.S. and around the world -- left behind? In this talk delivered at our most recent annual a16z Summit in November 2017, Angela Strange sh...

  • Apps like WeChat and Alipay in China show us what's possible when an entire country leapfrogs over the PC era directly to mobile. And while the contexts and nuances differ significantly, there are lots of product ideas that companies can learn from China (not just the other way around) -- especially given the trends of "super apps", whether for work or for personal use. In this "lightning talk" d...

  • As the product of millions of years of evolution, biology is incredibly complex. And until now, the science behind understanding biology has largely been driven by empiricism -- we try things out and see if they work, which, while it sounds great in theory, can result in billions of dollars lost in drug discovery (or other lost paths) in reality. But now, through advances in AI and machine learni...

  • The U.S. spent $2.6 trillion on healthcare in 2010; this is expected to double by 2020. Why so expensive? And why has healthcare been so resistant to the innovations that could bring costs down; why is it still so time-consuming and difficult to bring effective solutions to market? By enabling a more powerful understanding of biology, tech is literally "rewriting" how the healthcare industry disc...
