Forbes has just released its highly anticipated ranking of the top seed investors for 2024. While landing on a Forbes cover hasn’t always guaranteed good fortune (remember Elizabeth Holmes, Sam Bankman-Fried, and Changpeng Zhao?), making it onto this list is a different story.

To qualify for this prestigious ranking, investors must have portfolio companies that have either gone public, been acquired for at least $50 million, or have private valuations exceeding $100 million.
