Mattermark Ranks FundersClub Second For VC Portfolio Momentum

Here’s an eye opener…

Mattermark FundersClub RankingThis is a ranking of portfolio momentum among major VC firms. Second on the list: online venture capital firm FundersClub. That’s some impressive growth.

Here’s an explanation of the meaning of this extrapolation from Mattermark’s blog

Firms receive points based on an average of the Mattermark Score for each of their portfolio companies. This score is based on momentum, or a moving average of relative week-to-week changes in signals like website traffic, mobile downloads, inbound links, and social media following. The more dramatically positive the score, the faster the growth. A score approaching zero indicates stagnation (this is where startups go to die) and a negative score indicates a company that is currently losing growth and public mindshare. With this score we attempt to answer the question, “do a growing number of people in the world care that this startup exists?” To control for differences in the startup lifecycle, scores are weighted by relative change rather than overall volume, allowing them to compete for points on equal footing.

FundersClub led the B2C category outright, beating out Amplify.LA for the top spot. Head over to Mattermark for the full results.
