Balaji is both an entrepreneur and an academic. He was the cofounder and CTO of Counsyl, where he developed a new pre-pregnancy genomic test for a variety of heritable diseases.

Prior to Counsyl, Balaji obtained BS, MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and an MS in Chemical Engineering, all from Stanford. He then taught data mining, statistics, and computational biology in the Department of Statistics at Stanford before founding Counsyl. Recently, he taught an online Stanford course on the theory and practice of startups that reached over 125,000 students. He also runs the Stanford Bitcoin Group and advises a number of early stage companies.

As a General Partner, Balaji leads investments and joining boards on behalf of a16z. While broadly interested in technology in general, he’s particularly enthusiastic about “real world” applications where digital bits interface with physical atoms and substantive problems, such as quantified self (healthcare), MOOCs/edtech (education), Bitcoin (finance), drones, and 3D printing.
