Google's Conway leaves for Andreessen Horowitz

It's the first outside hire for the new $300 million venture fund, started by Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz.

The newly formed Andreessen Horowitz venture fund has its first outside recruit, and it's a Googler.

Ronny Conway, son of prominent Silicon Valley investor Ron Conway, is leaving his position at Google Ventures to join Netscape and Ning founder Marc Andreessen and partner Ben Horowitz in August, according to TechCrunch.

Conway had been at Google for six years, but Google Ventures, where he was an associate, was established earlier this year. Google Ventures' first major investment was in e-commerce start-up Pixazza.

Andreessen Horowitz first announced its new $300 million fund several weeks ago.
