SoCal VC's Scarce On Top VC List
This week's release of a list of their "Top 100" venture capitalists by AlwaysOn -- based roughly on number and dollar amount of successful M&A and IPO deals between October 1, 2005 to September 30, 2009--seems to have skipped local Southern California venture capitalists, with only one Southern California VCs listed. According to the list, just Jim Gauer of Palomar Ventures, made the cut. AlwaysOn highlighted Gauer's involvement in firms AlterPoint, Network Physics, RealOps, and Cerebra in the rankings. The list came as news that Forbes is dropping its "Midas List" rankings of top venture capitalists.
