Chris Dixon of Andreessen Horowitz to Keynote 13th Founder Showcase

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-02-28

We are very excited to announce the first Keynote Speaker for the 13th edition of the Founder Showcase, taking place on Wednesday, March 27th at the Microsoft Mountain View Campus: Chris Dixon.

Before recently moving to the Bay Area to be the newest Partner at Andreessen Horowitz, Chris was a leader of the burgeoning New York City startup scene. Chris co-founded, and was the former CEO of two startups; SiteAdvisor (an internet security company that was acquired by McAfee in 2006), and Hunch (a recommendation technology company that was acquired by eBay in 2011). As an investor, Chris also co-founded Founder Collective, a seed venture fund, where he made early stage investments in GroupMe, Buzzfeed, Betaworks, and MakerBot.

Chris also recently received the Crunchie for “2012 Angel Investor of the Year” in recognition for his personal angel investments in technology companies including Foursquare, Kickstarter, Stripe, Warby Parker, Pinterest, OMGPOP, Behance, Stack Overflow, and others.

You can read Chris’ great insights on startups and entrepreneurship on his blog at, or follow him on Twitter @cdixon.

We look forward to hearing Chris’ thoughts on the “Future of Funding” on March 27th. Get your tickets today
