Management consulting genius Tom Peters once told me that there are 3 rules to success in business:

  1. Work harder than everyone else.
  2. Go into every meeting better prepared than everyone else.
  3. Always have a useful piece of research up your sleeve.


So when my friend Theo Priestley sent me this beautiful graphic on Twitter today and I realised that the company who produced it, CB Insights had actually pulled the original post, I decided that was not acceptable. Taking Tom’s advice to heart, I thought it a good idea to share the full list of VC investors and their blogs, for anyone who might be interested. Following blogs like these are what keep us on top of our game, and help us go into meetings more inspired and more informed than those around us…




If you find the things that they say useful, it might be useful to look at your daily routine, and find time (and discipline) over your morning coffee to review your favourite ones every morning.
