Here’s an interesting video. Andreessen Horowitz co-founder Marc Andreessen recently spoke at the Bloomberg Technology Conference and said that he believes unicorns may finally have a way out of the enchanted forest:

“We see more M&A activity happening in the pipeline. We see more deals in consideration, than we have in probably four years.”

And he doesn’t see just one path either. The early Twitter investor also sees a spate of IPOs in the coming years, so much so that Andreessen Horowitz already has “a team inside the firm focused on IPO preparedness.” He also pointed out the unique traits of “great founders,” which, thanks to Andreessen’s natural ebullience, is a treat in itself.

Here’s the entire video. Check it out.
