Have you ever wished you could be in the room when founders present to the a16z investing team? Even better, do you wish you could stay to hear the discussion after the pitch?
We hear you and are thrilled to launch our latest series of videos called "The a16z Pitch Room". This inaugural episode features the Sandbox VR team Steve Zhao and Siqi Chen pitching to General Partner Andrew Chen.
Steve and Siqi present a lightly edited version of their pitch deck. Then Andrew will join them on screen and provide the “director’s commentary”: a slide-by-slide walkthrough of the presentation, describing what resonated, what didn’t, and how he thought about the investment opportunity.
