A top Silicon Valley VC firm avoided investing in prescription drugs for a decade. Here's why Andreessen Horowitz is changing its mind.

When Andreessen Horowitz was founded in 2009, the venture-capital firm didn't expect to invest in healthcare. That changed in 2015 when the firm launched its $200 million bio fund, which focused on investing in software companies in healthcare. The firm, which is now on its second bio fund, has historically avoided investing in therapeutics. That's beginning to change, general partner Jorge Conde told Business Insider.

Instacart workers are fighting back against a policy change they say drastically cut their wages

Netflix's 18% price hike shows it got too comfortable being the only game in town, and it could be a costly mistake (NFLX, DIS, T, CMCSA)

Netflix's price hike, announced Tuesday, could hurt the company eventually, if not immediately, Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter said. Customers may not notice it right away, but may pay more attention later this year when Disney launches a rival service with movies and shows that are no longer on Netflix, he said. Few consumers are likely to choose more than one pure streaming service, and Netflix's price hike has left it vulnerable to price competition, he added. Netflix's price hike may com...

Clinicians and advocates criticize the at-home approach, which they say prioritizes and long-term health. New hybrid approaches are beginning to emerge, starting with one from San Francisco-based genetics ...
