Google Ventures by sector: 63% mobile and Internet, 37% commerce, life science, energy, big data | MarketingHits | Scoop.it
Google Ventures has released its “Year In Review” for 2012, bringing together a number of stats which showcase the firm’s progress over the past twelve months. Many of the details shared have already been public for some time, including the fund’s growth to $300 million per year, but Google Ventures had never officially revealed where it invests by sector until today.


According an infographic posted by General Partner David Krane, Google Ventures has invested 32% of its funds in mobile, 31% in consumer Internet, 16% in commerce, 10% in big data, 6% in life science and 5% in energy. It’s noteworthy that these percentages show the breakdown of total investments through the end of 2012 — not just investments made during 2012.
