E&Y has an information-packed report on the state of Global Venture Capital Market in 2013/14. We highlight here the top ten VC dealmakers world-wide. Number one in terms of volume is KPCB, followed by Accel Partners, and Andreessen Horowitz.
In terms of number of investments, which must be considered given that early stage deals are much smaller in size than the later stage investments, the leader is a relative newcomer to VC, namely 500 Startups (a next generation incubator fund whose typical first deal is USD 250K).
Number two is Sequoia, followed by Andreessen Horowitz. The list is dominated by US investors, which is not surprising, only the European team at Index Ventures made the top 10 list. It is worth noting that two corporate venture funds are moving the needle of the Top 10 charts at E&Y, namely Google Ventures and Intel Capital, both of which operate internationally.
