    Reid Hoffman
    Co-founder, LinkedIn

    The 44-year-old co-founder of LinkedIn has become a sort of divining rod for finding hot social-media properties that come out of nowhere and change Hollywood. Hoffman arranged the first meeting between Mark Zuckerberg and Peter Thiel, who became an investor in Facebook -- Hoffman invested alongside him. He also put money into and joined the board of Zynga during its first round of funding. He joined Greylock Partners two years ago and runs its $20 million Discovery Fund. Hoffman's other investments have included Flickr, Digg, Ning and Last.fm.
