About Builders Retreat

Andreessen Horowitz’s second Builders Retreat will bring together leaders and innovators who are helping shape our future. This intimate and invitation-only event will allow for a small group of B2B founders — whose company stages range from idea to early product-market fit — to gather and connect.

The event will feature fireside chats, facilitated breakout sessions, and activities, as well as ample opportunities for founders to  share learnings with each other.
