Network Effects: Categories & Debates (2 of 3)

D'Arcy Coolican, Li Jin, and Frank Chen

So in this second video of our three-part miniseries on network effects, a16z operating partner Frank Chen sets up some quick lightning-round style debates between a16z consumer deal & investing team partners D’Arcy Coolican and Li Jin to discuss categories such as cities, food delivery, social networks, and more.
