This infographic was created by our friends at CreditLoan.

Thanks also to our friends at TechCrunch for creating the fantastic resource CrunchBase.  It's one of those ideas I'd wish I had done myself.

Would like to see another one of these in about 2 years. The social networking space is getting more crowded by the day and yet the space is still pretty much in its infancy. I wonder how many names will be on the list in 2 years...

Would be cool if the width of the stripes connecting folks was (on the investor side of things) representative of their investment (on the company side of things) representative of of their current value.

Hello Dharmesh. I found your article very interesting. I have developed a business social network in latinamerica, and I am interested in going for my first round of financing. I don´t know very well how is it that internet ventures present their cases to potential investors. Do you have any presentation that internet ventures have done to investors? It would be tremendously helpfull in order to understand which are the issues that these ventures address when presenting themselves. Thanks very much in advance. Guillermo Jofre - email:

Very original, but a little difficult to read. I agree with FN that proportional stripes to level of investment would have been really cool. 
For someone looking for some capital, also a good resource if you can figure out how to get in front of them. 
Well done.
