Ah Beginning to Believe Their Own B.S. and Behaving Like Prima Donnas.

Fund: Andreessen Horowitz

Posted by Yin & Yang on 2013-02-01

PUBLIC:

When Marc and Ben decided to start a full venture fund, I was incredibly excited. I knew these guys would shake up the old guard and bring in a fresh approach to the VC business. Early success and reviews indicate that good times were ahead. Marc and Ben were both considerate, quick to respond and respectful of entrepreneurs. However, now that the firm has grown and AH has seen even more success, stardom and its effects have begun to show in the way they conduct business. Graciousness has been replaced by arrogance, timely follow up replaced by long silence. As an entrepreneur who has been funded top VC firms and have returned hundreds of millions to shareholders, I think I qualify to write a critique. My advice to Marc and Ben is to have a long talk with their staffers and make sure they stop drinking the prima donna Kool-Aid and behaving like jack-asses. Nobody likes to be disrespected, and you can be sure that if it keeps up, it will catch up to you. AH is the shiny new VC at the moment, but that can change. Look at what to KPCB and what is currently happening to Benchmark. People want to be treated with respect and that above is what they will remember about your firm.
