Autograph, an NFT platform co-founded by professional football player Tom Brady, raised $170 million in a Series B funding round led by Silicon Valley investors Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins. 

The startup, launched in July, also received investments from Lightspeed Venture partner Nicole Quinn and Katie Haun’s new firm. Haun, who recently left a16z, as Andreessen Horowitz is known, to start her own venture, is also joining as a board member, along with a16z partners Arianna Simpson and Chris Dixon, and Kleiner Perkins partner Ilya Fushman.
