Mary Meeker '81 on Forbes' 'Midas List'
May 5, 2012
Mary Meeker, a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and 1981 graduate of DePauw University, is on the "Midas List." Published by Forbes magazine, the list includes 2012's top tech investors.
"Meeker is doubtless one of the strongest and smartest people in tech, but her biggest strength in her career might be her unrelenting focus on data," notes VentureBeat. "Her background as an analyst gives her work a no-nonsense focus on numbers. Since, as her research has shown over the decades, around 5 percent of tech companies create around 90 percent of the industry’s wealth, she looks at the balance sheet first, market opportunities second, and management teams third."
After earning a B.A. from DePauw, where she majored in psychology, Meeker received an M.B.A. in finance from Cornell University. Meeker also holds an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from DePauw.
