Not necessarily. And not if the list you’re referring to is the “100 Most Influential VCs, Angels and Investors” compiled by Lucy Marcus, the Huffington Post columnist and the non-executive board chair of the Mobius Life Science Fund.
Call this list one for the new, social decade. Marcus (pictured), who also is founder of the Marcus Venture Consulting, posted her list this week on PeerIndex, a site that ranks people based on their digital footprints.
Some of its influencers will come as no surprise. Union Square Ventures’ Fred Wilson is number 3 and blogger investor Paul Kedrosky, number 4.
But what about Kevin Rose, Digg founder, at the top of the chart (he does have 1.2 million Twitter followers)? And how about Twitter investor Chris Sacca number 2? (He also has 1.3 million followers on Twitter.)
Other notables: 500 Startups’ Dave McClure, 9, Foundry Group’s Brad Feld, 11, and cleantech investor Vinod Khosla, 14.
