A good piece on Google Capital's latest investment..Thumbtack! Also highlights how we are trying to stay competitive by connecting entrepreneurs to experienced Googlers who can help make a difference.
The new round led by Google's growth equity investment arm is designed to bankroll the startup's growth through its IPO.

Congratulations to the whole Lending Club team!
 
Congratulations to the Management Team and All the Employees of +Lending Club!

Lending Club, one of Google Capital 's first investments, went public today. Today is the culmination of 8 years of really hard work, and an important moment in Lending Club’s journey to make borrowing and lending more efficient. 

A lot has been written about Lending Club over the past few weeks. One important part of the Lending Club story that has gotten less attention is the most basic building block of any company: the quality of Lending Club's team, the values that they share, and the integrity and humanity that they bring into their everyday decision making to ensure they build the best corporate culture that they can. 

The Google Capital team has witnessed this first hand.  Renauld Laplanche, Scott Sanborn, Carrie Dolan, Chaomei Chen, John Macllwaine, Jason Altieri, Angela Loeffler, Jeff Bogan, Tom Green, Divya Agarwalla, Sid Jajodia, Richard Neiman, Ankur Bhatia, Kareen Issa, and Nauzaneen Mostofi…you have been wonderful partners. Congratulations for getting the hardest in building a company right.

California got more bad news this week regarding the drought. The snowpack is vanishing fast, the drought will only get worse over the next 3 months, and there is a strong human fingerprint on this weather anomaly, thanks to climate change.

This is probably the best explanation I have given about how Google thinks about and executes M&A. I guess practice makes perfect and after almost 5 years, I have finally got the pitch down . :)

Running Google's M&A is about as intellectually stimulating as any job can be and I have had a terrific time doing it. I am very excited about my next move and look forward to sharing more in the new year.

I'd like to know also and I'm also sorry for posting here.  I used to be a web developer and have an idea that would be a great addition to google's search options (Web, Images, Shopping, "my idea"). I'm sure I won't get a response, but.. hey, I'm an optimist. :) I'm actually surprised no one has thought of it yet.

I am a parent of a daughter at Concord Academy. I regularly send flowers to my daughter and I am always thrilled with what they deliver. I never have to worry; they always follow through.

Cafe Marcella is the kind of place you can go to all the time. The food is great, the atmosphere is relaxing....its great neighborhood Italian.

Pizza is a matter of taste, but if you love thin slice pizza, I think this is the best place in town.
