    Aneel Bhusri of Greylock should be at the top of this list. No question. He has been a leading catalyst in Cloud computing and the current revolution in enterprise technology.

  2. Serious?

    Charlie O’Donnel ahead of Josh Kopelman? Charlie is a joke as is this list.

    Nice exercise – wd be great if you could also add their personal IRR to the mix.

    Also what happens Andreesed and McClure if you add the median score of the sample instead of a zero on their missing rankings?

    2. RS

      Jeff is an empty suit. Useless and cant trust.

    How many of them will help a guy from southeastern Europe to work wonders in Sillicon Valley ?

    You should resort it based on number of deals as one additional filter which will give you average rating per deal so that you are comparing apples to apples in terms of larger volume players like Conway and McClure vs. people who only do 2-3 deals a year.

    Then you could also do by size of investment, although I am not sure that this will be as useful. One would hope that people who invested more money would be doing more to add to their investment but I doubt this is strongly correlated.
