100 Most Influential VCs, Angels & Investors

On 28th March 2011 I created a Peerindex Group of 700+ dynamic list of active vc’s, angels & investors from around the world (individuals & org’s). That full list can be found here

From that list is drawn a list of 100 Most Influential VCs, Angels & Investors.

Part of what makes these lists interesting is their dynamic nature. The results that are there today are different than what existed on the first day it appeared.

The list of names has grown more complete: crowd sourcing meant suggestions were made for both the full and top 100 lists, and they continue to grow.

Also, as people’s activity in the social media sphere evolves, their Peerindex rating changes, so the list looks a little different, or sometimes drastically different, every day.

The top 15 rankings upon the list publication were:

  1. Kevin Rose
  2. Chris Sacca
  3. Fred Wilson
  4. Paul Kedrosky
  5. Howard Lindzon
  6. David Pakman
  7. Dave Morin
  8. Jason Calacanis
  9. Dave McClure
  10. Brad Feld
  11. Marc Suster
  12. Chris Dixon
  13. Tim Ferriss
  14. Dharmesh Shah
  15. Esther Dyson

How do they compare to today’s rankings?

If you think a VC or angel is missing from the list, please go to the FULL LIST and suggest additions. If they fall within the top 100 they will be added to that list as well.
