Chris Dixon, a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz, has recently announced at the TechCrunch Disrupt event that the venture capital company would start a new project. Andreessen Horowitz is set to launch its own crypto school for startups.
People can already apply to be a part of the initiative, which is aimed at the democratization of cryptos and to help startups to obtain better results.
According to Dixon, the company has been involved in the blockchain space for seven years now, so it is time to share some of this knowledge with young entrepreneurs who want to make a name for themselves.
This could not only boost the crypto economy but also create several new investment opportunities for the company and other investors. The company will obviously not invest in all the startups participating in the program, but the most promising ones will possibly be able to get the funds to take their ideas forward.
It was revealed that the program will last seven weeks and that it will be started on February 21st of next year. Everything will be free of charge, but only the most promising startups will receive the chance to participate if there are too many applicants. The program is looking for around 25 teams.
All lectures will take place in Silicon Valley, as expected, so you should be willing to spend a few weeks there if you want to participate. Fortunately, all lessons will be recorded and people will be able to freely watch them later.
The content of the course includes explanations on what are crypto networks, how the blockchain works, crypto-economics and applications, how to fundraise, governance, participation, and other relevant topics.
