Hi +Eze Vidra​ - what's the current state of quantum information in investors' minds? There's the relative certainty of off-the-shelf key distribution that uses entanglement but it'd be interesting to hear whether anyone is worried/excited. Or are the possibilities just too little known to form a sensible opinion?

Story
Tagline
Immersing myself in the startup community in London
Introduction
I'm a General Partner at Google Ventures Europe.

Before GV, I was the Head of Google for Entrepreneurs Europe, supporting startup ecosystems and helping them grow. In 2012, I've started and led Campus London, Google's first physical startup hub, providing founders with networking, learning and mentoring access, from Googlers, investors and thought leaders in the tech world. 

Prior to leading Campus, I was a strategic partnerships manager at Google, where I spearheaded several of Google's European commerce offerings including the launch of Google Shopping in Spain and Local Shopping in UK. Previously, I worked in a number of tech companies: I was Principal Product Manager of AOL Search in Europe, Senior Product Manager at Ask.com in San Francisco, Product Manager at Gerson Lehrman Group in New York and Team Leader at Shopping.com in Israel. Going back a bit, I co-founded a tech startup in Israel in 2003 and in 2005 I founded VC Cafe, a popular blog on early stage Israeli startups.

I have an MBA from London Business School and a BA in Business Administration, IT Management and Entrepreneurship from the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Israel

I'm also a trustee of Up Europe and serve on the advisory board of BBC Worldwide Labs. I'm a frequent public speaker on startups and innovation. 
Bragging rights
I created Techbikers (www.techbikers.com), a non-for-profit that brings together the tech community through cycling events, to support children's education in developing markets. So far in 2 years, we've raised more than £100,000 for Room to Read.
