Could you envision today’s society without technology in it? Technology and, in turn, companies that operate in this realm, have constantly evolved over the past years to the point that life without them would be entirely different. But who are the top players in this ever-developing field?
Today, we would like to present you with a list we have compiled of the top 30 dealmakers in technology, based on the report issues late 2013 by Forbes Magazine. The experts at Forbes took into account several factors when they ranked the top investors in technology. The main goal was identifying the venture capitalists who have managed to generate the biggest returns on investments and who have had a big influence in today’s important corporations. Initial public offerings, mergers, and acquisitions were analyzed, primarily by evaluating data provided by the Dow Jones VentureSource. Investors were ranked not only according to the value of the exit, but also according to the number of successful exists each of them had. Companies and investors from Europe, the US, China, India, and Israel were evaluated.
Curious to see who has made the biggest move in technology in 2013? Let’s take a look at the countdown.
