Promod Haque      

Senior Managing Partner, Norwest Venture Partners

As senior managing partner at Norwest Venture Partners, Promod Haque has over 20 years of experience in the VC industry. His most notable deal has been cybersecurity company FireEye, which had the second-best performing IPO in the US in 2013. This year, Haque's investment in Skybox Imaging paid off when Google acquired the HD satellite imagery company for $500 million. In the past year, Haque has joined the boards of Dtex and Shape Security. In 2004, we ranked Haque as the number one venture capitalist over the previous decade. His investments in more than 60 companies have produced more than $40 billion in exit values. He's had more than 20 portfolio companies go public and over 30 have been acquired. Promod is a human rights advocate, working with International Justice Mission and Opportunity International in Costa Rica, Uganda, and India.


Who's Been On The Midas List More Than Anyone?

FORBES first published the Midas List of the world’s smartest tech investors two and a half bubbles ago. Many of the people on that inaugural list of 2001 we once knew and loved are now either semi-retired (Bob Kagle, Dick Kramlich) or no longer playing the game at the level they once did (you know who you are). Gone also are the non-VCs we used to include to acknowledge the company-building contributions of power lawyers like Larry Sonsini and Jim Gaither, or tech bankers such as Michael Grimes, Brad Koenig (now a startup CEO) and Frank Quattrone. Midas became a pure VC list by 2006.
