Marc Andreessen is best known for co-founding internet browser Netscape and later launching Andreessen Horowitz, one of Silicon Valley's most famous venture capital firms.


Today, a16z has $4.2 billion under management. Andreessen was an early investor in tech companies like Facebook and Twitter, and has overseen its investments in hot, billion-dollar startups like Airbnb.

Andreessen's net worth was an estimated $600 million in 2012 and has likely only increased since - not bad for someone who grew up in a sleepy "no-stoplight town" in rural Wisconsin.
