Top 100 Venture Capitalists Of 2010

0

AO.VSSV10.VC100 Tony Perkins from AlwaysOn does an overview of venture capitalists over the past decade and says, “the stars in the venture capital industry have proven that there is life after a ten-year run of marginal returns and two brutal recessions that knocked NASDAQ under 1,200 in September 2002, and under 1,400 in February 2009.”

To help pick the VC100 this year, the AlwaysOn editorial team sourced data from its research partners Morgan Stanley, VentureDeal, The 451 Group, and select industry experts on more than 300 active VC firms as well as reviewing their investments and exits. The AO editorial team will rotate individual VCs and firms in each subsequent VC100.

During the past year, the stars in the venture capital industry have proven that there is life after a ten-year run of marginal returns and two brutal recessions that knocked NASDAQ under 1,200 in Septmeber 2002, and under 1,400 in February 2009.

The winners of the VC 100 competition will be officially honored at:

Venture Summit Silicon Valley 2010, whose tagline is Where Big Ideas Meet Big Money, December 13-15, 2010 at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay.
