Andreessen Horowitz swings for the GitHub fences with $100 Million Series A Venture Investment


Please see link below to article in "Upstart Business Journal" on the recent $100 Million Series A investment in GitHub made by one of Silicon Valley's hottest venture capital firms Andressssen Horowitz.

As it probably goes without saying, a $100 million is an outsized early stage venture investment.  It is my understanding that GitHub has refused outside money to this point.  Series A investments usually range in the $3 to $6 million range.  

Lean Startup "Business Models" in Government



See excellent video from this year's South By Southwest (SXSW 2012) of Todd Park, U.S., Chief Technology Officer (CTO). 

The video, from March 2012, illustrates Todd's passion for "data liberation", the unleashing of lean "business models" in government, and his excitement for health informatics.

As you may know, Todd is a founder of AthenaHealth, Castlight and Healthpoint.

Highly recommended!
