Midas List: The class of 2013


Forbes just published their Midas List of the Top 100 Venture Capital Investors.  I was listed in the top ten (number eight) ten years ago.   That was the last time I appeared on the list.  It was interesting to me to see the top ten of 2013 and to realize that not one person on the 2003 made it to that list. Here are the members of the class of 2013:
Rank Name Firm The Big Deal
1

Jim Breyer

Accel Partners Facebook
2

Marc Andreessen

Andreessen Horowitz Skype
3

Peter Thiel

Founders Fund Facebook
4

Douglas Leone

Sequoia Capital Meraki
5

Reid Hoffman

Greylock Partners LinkedIn
6

Peter Fenton

Benchmark Twitter
7

Jim Goetz

Sequoia Capital Ruckus Wireless
8

Scott Sandell

New Enterprise Associates Workday
9

Jeremy Levine

Bessemer Venture Partners Pinterest
10

David Sze

Greylock Partners Facebook
I am glad to see my old friends, Jim Breyer and Doug Leone made the list as well as Marc Andreesen whom I meet the week he joined Jim Clark at Netscape.  I don’t know any of the others.
Here is the list from 2003.
