The latest episode of Kevin Rose's Foundation video series comes to you filmed live from the Google Ventures Founder & CEO Summit last week. Kevin sits down with Ben Horowitz, co-founder of Opsware and now General Partner at Andreessen Horowitz.

Ben shares how he got his start as an intern at Silicon Graphics, and went on to found and build Opsware into a billion dollar company. He offers candid advice for entrepreneurs on the importance of establishing a thoughtful communication architecture, how to hire for scale, and the secret to getting the most out of board meetings. He also reveals what he looks for in a pitch: Above all else, he asks "does the founder have the courage to build the company?"
