Andreessen Horowitz, one of Silicon Valley’s most respected venture capitalist firms, has shared its “16 Things” list. This is a breakdown of the most exciting and innovative tech trends right now.

“We don’t invest in themes; we invest in special founders with breakthrough ideas. Which means we don’t make investments based on a pre-existing thesis about a category,|” says the firm. 

“That said, here are a few of the things we’ve been observing or thinking about; we’re especially grateful to our founders/companies, and the entrepreneurs we meet with everyday, for their insights here.”

The 16 trends are good to read because of the insight they offer from a VC perspective, and where they see technology moving and developing.

Check out the list:

  1. Virtual reality
  2. Sensorification of the enterprise
  3. Machine learning and big data
  4. The full-stack startup
  5. Containers
  6. Digital health
  7. Online marketplaces
  8. Security
  9. Bitcoin (and Blockchain)
  10. Cloud-client computing
  11. Crowdfunding
