Google innately understands the power of a simple idea, a simple idea that will not become anything more unless it is supported intellectually and financially. Google Ventures, founded in 2009, is the venture capitalist investment arm of Google that selects technology startups to invest in. Its purpose is to provide funding for “entrepreneurs with a healthy disregard for the impossible” and is certainly one of the company’s most promising solutions for new businesses.
Google’s Startup Lab uniquely blends expertise in the field of startup technology companies and provides an opportunity for companies to learn, work and share ideas. Google presents the platform for entrepreneurs to initiate conversation and attract funding to turn the fruits of these conversations into functioning prototypes.
The services provided through Google Ventures include assistance with marketing strategy, developing an engineering team, working with a functional design team and more. Below is just one of the companies Google Ventures has helped.
It is safe to say that a simple idea fostered through Google Ventures has the potential to become the next must-have consumer product or business solution.
Just one example of Google honoring its history and innately understanding what entrepreneurs need most, Google Ventures is a start up support system unlike any other venture fund in the world.
