Google to Venture into the Life Sciences

Google announced on Monday that it’s launching its own venture capital fund under the leadership of Rich Miner and Bill Maris

Interestingly, they have taken pains to assure companies  that “[y]ou don’t have to be a potential Google acquisition for us to want to work with you.”  So don’t be shy.

In fact, Google Ventures aims to invest some of its $100 million in the biotech and healthcare industries.  Maybe Google’s previous investment in the bio-informatics company 23andMe has whet their appetite.
