There are a number of venture capital firms, micro-VCs, angels, accelerators, late stage investors and acquirers all over the world. Few you know and few you never heard of. Every year there are new names added and subtracted from the tech ecosystem.

Venture capital’s most active investors are changing quickly over time and new players like Alibaba, Tencent and Tiger Global Management now flex their financing muscle in Silicon Valley and beyond quite regularly.

Lists of angelsmicro VCscorporate venture arms & the top VCs in tech, are there but people often question about who are the players in the tech ecosystem that people should know and really shouldn’t miss to know.

Keeping this mind, CB Insights has recently introduced The Periodic Table of Tech – a resource for the tech community to understand the 118 key players in the ever-growing and ever-changing universe of tech investors and acquirers.

This list of firms and individuals were drawn from a mix of data-driven posts we’ve produced (many detailed below) that analyzed investor quality, network strength and financing and M&A deal activity.
