vc-stripsmall.jpgThe Mercury News has just run a story listing the top five venture capitalists under the age of 40. Reporter Constance Loizos has done a good job with the selection. Here’s her intro.

Below are the names of the VCs and links to short profiles.

1. Danny Rimer. Hits: Skype, Tellme.

2. Roelof Botha. Hits: YouTube.

3. Peter Thiel. Hits: Facebook

4. Peter Fenton. Hits: Reactivity, JBoss, Wily.

5. Kevin Efrusy. Hits: Facebook

Of these, who do you think is tops? Admittedly, the bios are short, and don’t list all their investments. But if you have an opinion, vote below. And if you think another VC not on the list deserves mention, add them below in comments. (If you’re reading this in RSS, you’ll have to go to the site to see the poll.)
