Sam Lerer, Vice President on General Atlantic's Internet and Technology team, was named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30” Venture Capital List, for investing in the next great technology companies. The list was selected by Forbes’ editorial team and a panel of industry judges to honor men and women under the age of 30 who provide funding and support to leading startups. Sam joined General Atlantic in 2013 to focus on investments in the Internet & Technology sector.
Anton Levy, Managing Director and Global Head of General Atlantic’s Internet & Technology Sector, was named #26 of 100 to Forbes’ Midas List of Top Tech Investors for 2017. This is the third consecutive year that Anton has been named to the Midas List.
New York equity firm General Atlantic’s investment in Vox Media last year apparently left the media organisation with a valuation of nearly US$400 million. With digital media companies increasingly of interest to growth investors (at least in the US), General Atlantic vice president Zachary Kaplan’s appearance at Digital Media Strategies 2015 was pretty timely.
