Accel has been around as long as tech giants like Microsoft and Apple. They’ve steadily found ways to invest their money in forward-thinking technologies that help to better mankind. They’re not terribly approachable if you’re the squeamish type without clear direction, but if you have a great idea in the sectors they service, it’s well worth setting up a meeting at one of their offices.
Accel has invested and consulted with all the top technology companies out there today including Facebook, GoFundMe, Dropbox, Flipkart, Braintree, Etsy, Spotify, Slack, Fiverr, Groupon, and a long list of others.
While most of the deal makers on this list do operate internationally, Accel puts themselves right in the forefront with offices in San Francisco, London, and Bangalore.
