Nov 2012 snapshot: Chris Dixon in talks to be partner at a16z.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in @cdixon
Kara Swisher says: "According to sources, well-known New York techie Chris Dixon is in the final stages of discussions to become a partner at the high-profile Silicon Valley venture firm Andreessen Horowitz."
In July Dixon wrote Shoehorning Startups into the VC Model:
A startup should raise venture capital (or ‘venture-style’ angel/seed funding) only if: 1) the goal is to build a billion-dollar (valuation) company, and 2) raising millions of dollars is absolutely necessary or will significantly accelerate growth. … Unfortunately, many of these startups graft VC-friendly narratives onto their plans and raise too much money. Short term it might seem like a good idea but long term it won’t.
Sounds like he'd make a fine VC.
@cdixon hasn't written on cdixon.org in a month. Wow.
And his last tweet was several days ago, retweeting Boris Wertz quoting a16z partner Peter Levine's Defrag speech that there's an enterprise software renaissance going on.
