The 89 active bloggers in the venture capital, angel and accelerator community.

When Fred Wilson started blogging every day and gaining notoriety, a number of other VCs began blogging. But over time, many of those VC blogs became zombies. But today, there is a bit of a renaissance for VC blogging.  And since our team follows these closely, we wanted to share some of the best ones with you.

Today, we’re introducing The Periodic Table of Venture Capital Blogs – a resource for entrepreneurs, investors and those in the larger innovation economy – which highlights 89 active venture capital bloggers (defined as blogging at least a couple times in the past year) in the venture capital, angel and accelerator community.  The table is a bit different than our previous periodic tables, which primarily focus on active investors and key companies by vertical.

We expect that this list of 89 will change over time as new investors become active in the VC blogosphere and others become zombies so we’ll continue to update.  If you believe someone should be added, please leave a comment below with a link to their blog.

Navigating the Periodic Table of Venture Capital Blogs

The table focuses on investors with personal blogs broken down as follows:

  • The left side of the Periodic Table of Venture Capital Blogs includes names of investor-bloggers who belong to mid-size or large-cap venture capital firms ranging from Andreessen Horowitz to Foundry Group to Union Square Ventures. A handful of investor-bloggers at corporate VC firms are also highlighted.
  • On the right of that are investor-bloggers at micro VC firm (<$100M funds). These range from Homebrew to NextView Ventures to SV Angel.
  • The far right covers angel investor-bloggers as well as those belonging to or running accelerator programs such as Y Combinator and Techstars.

Below we’ve detailed the full list of bloggers, their blog coverage and links:

    Pangaea Ventures’ blog has been running for a few years now and has active contributions from all partners (myself included) and associates, and even the odd guest blog from one of our LPs. And it seems especially appropriate to your periodic table theme, since we are specialists in advanced materials venture capital. http://www.pangaeaventures.com/blog

  • http://www.kylelacy.com/ Kyle Lacy

    Our investment team / partners should be considered. Scott Maxwell, George Roberts, Blake Bartlett and Mackey Craven are active bloggers for the OpenView platform, third-party sites and our newsletter which engages over 50,000 people every week. It might be worthwhile to apply a true data model around why someone would be featured as an active VC blogger (Total traffic, email engagement, social engagement scores, etc) other than how much they write. I agree with most of the names listed but maybe we should be more scientific in the selection process.

  • Lu

    One favourite of mine is http://DrugBaron.com/recent-posts/, a very good if infrequently updated blog on drug development and issues surrounding early-stage biotech, written pseudonymously by David Grainger of Index Ventures.

  • ANAGARD, LLC

    I am bookmarking this page! It’s fabulous resource for all entrepreneurs that are getting ready to fundraise.
    It struck me to see the absence of angel investor blogs (yellow color) , with the exception of handful of very prominent ones. Why is that? I would speculate, based on my experience that angel investors still prefer to hide and play hard to get. A lot of angel investment groups are in stealth mode and to reach their members you have to know Mr. X that knows Mr. Y that know Mr. Z until you ultimately find Mr. Angel that belongs to a mysterious angel investment club. Then, after spending all the time networking, you pitch to the group only to find out that they are more like a dinner club and your pitch is for the entertainment only, they really don’t mean to open the purse.
    Well, there are a lot of good angels out there and they are very active on crowdfunding investments platforms and they are easy to find. If you are an angel investor and you are not making yourself visible on crowdfunding platforms, on blogs — yes entrepreneurs want to know you as a person before they take your money — you are missing out on a deal flow.

    For readers wanting to add the blogs to their RSS reader, it would be very helpful if you provided an OPML file of all of the blogs so we could easily subscribe without having to subscribe to dozens of individual blogs manually. Thanks for considering.
