data partner to Forbes on the industry’s biggest lists

In 2011, TrueBridge began partnering with Forbes to publish the Midas List of the world’s top 100 venture capitalists, as well as author a venture-focused column for Forbes.com. A few years later, we helped launch Midas List Europe, a ranking of the top 25 venture capitalists in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

The Forbes Midas List is a data-driven list that leverages more than 20 years of deal information across hundreds of funds and thousands of investors to present the most accurate, comprehensive ranking of the world’s top investors each year. TrueBridge is proud to be the data engine behind the Midas List, receiving confidential submissions and updating and running the sophisticated model to help select and rank the top venture investors.

In conjunction with the Midas List, we also co-publish the Brink List with Forbes, which highlights up-and-comers in the venture industry – the faces we expect to see on the Midas List in the future. These individuals are leveraging their diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to shape the VC industry in years to come.
