At Venture360, we’ve been powering deal makers for years. You are our people – after all. We know that sourcing, screening and building the private portfolios of our future is really hard work that doesn’t leave a lot of time in the day to worry about self promotion.

This is why we built the referral-only Most Influential Investors list. This list shines a spotlight on the people moving the needle day-to-day and doing the deals that matter.

The investors on this list have been a positive influence in their communities and for the venture industry.

These are the kinds of investors you want managing money and helping build the next generation of companies.

Congratulations to our 2019 list of Most Influential Investors!
