The Information
2015 Future List

The venture capital firms best positioned for the future.


For the technology industry to thrive, investors need to find entrepreneurs in more places. And the talent pool is diversifying far faster than investments firms are. That’s why we created the Future List. For three months, we worked with Social Capital to gather more than 6,000 data points on 552 senior investment professionals at 71 firms. We hope this contributes to the ongoing discussion around diversity.
