Just one month away from starting the 2012 cycles of the NewME Accelerator (February 20) we’re excited to announce one of the top venture capital firms in technology, Andreessen Horowitz, as our most recent partner. The partnership includes sponsorship of the accelerator as well as mentorship and speaker dinners with NewME Founders. NewME’s mission is to accelerate, educate, and inform underrepresented technology entrepreneurs around the world, and consistent with the NewME mission the partnership will also include sourcing and referring top minority technology talent to the firm’s Talent Agency.
Last but not least, joining our growing list of amazing mentors and speakers from the Andreessen Horowitz team are:
Ben Horowitz, general partner and co-founder of Andreessen Horowitz, participated in the first cycle of the NewME Accelerator in 2011 and gave one of the most valuable talks in the program. We are excited to have him back as well as other members from the Andreessen Horowitz team.
