Ben Harowitz’s venture capital firm back Elon Musk’s $44 billion Twitter bid

Elon Musk, Tesla CEO and founder is currently on the campaign trail to raise $44 billion funds to buy out Twitter. Several companies have raised their hands to join and help Musk on his mission.  

One of those people who’s willing to help Musk to raise the capital is Ben Harowitz through his venture capital firm, Andreessen Horowitz. 

In a tweet, Ben, co-founder and general partner at Andreessen Horowitz said, “Elon is the one person we know and perhaps the only person in the world who has the courage, brilliance, and skills to fix all of these and build the public square that we all hoped for and deserve.” 

“We invested because we believe in Ev and Jack’s vision to connect the world and we believe in Elon’s brilliance to finally make it what it was meant to be. While Twitter has great promise as a public square, it suffers from a myriad of difficult issues ranging from bots to abuse to censorship. Being a public company solely reliant on an advertising business model exacerbates all of these,” adds Horowitz. 

Ben is not alone on this mission to enable Musk to buy Twitter. Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao are one of those willing to invest. He said, “the crypto exchange hopes to be able to play a role in bringing social media and web3 together and broadening the use and adoption of crypto and blockchain technology.”
