The Wall Street Journal sits down with Bill Maris, head of Google Ventures, to find out where the search giant is looking for the next big thing. And it’s not where you think. “I'm
interested in the ideas that sound a little crazy, such as radical life extension, curing cancer, being able to create a simulation of the human brain and map every neuron,” Maris explains. To
date, the VC unit has channeled more than $300 million into more than 130 companies.
