As we move toward the new year, we wanted to take a moment to congratulate Google Ventures for its enormous success in 2014 (and for the ass-kicking website celebrating it).
GV’s 2014 deal flow numbers are impressive: 57 new companies — including Tamr — and 16 acquisition/IPO exits. Their 2014 impact numbers are staggering, with their portfolio companies achieving things like supporting 1-in-5 active cancer patients in the US (Flatiron Health), avoiding 1,674 enterprise security crises (Synack), serving 20% of American schools (Clever) and saving over 80,000 medical appointment hours (One Medical).
GV’s portfolio companies are solving big, hairy problems facing businesses and institutions, consumers and citizens. We couldn’t be prouder to count Tamr as one of them, or be more determined to deliver the kind of impact expected from any company in the extended Google family.
