THE BEST IN THE WEST
Congratulations to the Social Capital Team!
Social Capital beat out their peers in Freeagentglobal.com's 2017 "Best in the West" VC ranking. The ranking criteria was based on quantitative and qualitative metrics. These metrics included mission/vision, leadership, people, growth, culture and mindshare. We also used qualitative metrics such as peer validations, company mission statements, and Founder vision statements. The Social Capital Team scored the highest in both categories of quantitative and qualitative metrics.
Quantitative and Qualitative Metrics
Our methodology was to use a combination of quantitative and qualitative metrics to rank the venture capital firms in our analysis. A couple of the quantitative metrics were developed by Mattermark which is a company that tracks the performance of startups and VC firms. The Freeagentglobal.com Team developed the diversity metric and the qualitative metrics. We looked at the best VC firm in both the quantitative and qualitative to determine a #1 winner for our 2017 "Best in the West" VC ranking.
Peter Drucker - The Founder of Modern Management
At Freeagentglobal.com, we are big believers in culture. Put simply, it is very difficult to build a great company unless you have great people and a culture that supports them. Peter Drucker stated the importance of culture in his well-known quote, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." GREAT Culture gives you the foundation to achieve your strategy. Social Capital is an example of a VC firm with great people and culture. In the end, it's all about great people and culture!!!
