Michael Goguen returns to the Midas List this year as Sequoia’s go-to partner for enterprise IT, infrastructure, cybersecurity and chip investments. The former engineer and veteran VC (he joined Sequoia in 1996) is on the board at fast-growing startups deep in the technical weeds like OpenDNS, Quantenna Communications, Versa Networks and vIPtela. He’s still on the board at Infoblox (IPO 2012) and guided Virident Systems to a $685 million exit in 2013. His biggest win came as part of Sequoia’s team effort to take FireEye public (IPO 2013). The company’s now worth more than $6 billion. A New England native, Michael Goguen spends much of his free time in the quiet town of Whitefish, Montana and is an active philanthropist.
