New Adviser at Andreessen Horowitz

Andreessen Horowitz, the venture-capital firm in Silicon Valley, has recently added a new software veteran to its advisers’ list. Kenneth Coleman, 70, will provide advice, mentorship and introductions for Andreesen Horowitz’ portfolio companies.

Coleman explained his plans, as he said, “I hope to be asked good questions, be a good listener, provide insight, open doors, make connections that might matter.” He has already been instrumental in helping Andreessen Horowitz by helping some of the portfolio companies to make presentations at a pharmaceutcal company that he advises.

Coleman founded ITM Software, which is a provider of information-technology management services. He has spent many years, as well, in management positions at Silicon Graphics Inc., Activision and Hewlett Packard.
