If you’re familiar at all with the history of Android, you’ll recognize the name Rich Miner. Â If you’re not, he’s one of the co-founders of Android, the company that was bought out by Google back in 2005. Â He’s been there since the beginning and worn a few different hats. Â If the rumors prove to be true, he’ll soon be wearing a new one for Google. Â Venture Capilatist. Â
A Reuters reporter was at a recent conference for web startups and noticed something strange sitting on a table – a name tag with Rich Miner and Google Ventures listed on it. Â As of right now, there is no such this as Google Venture… At least not in any official capacity.
When contacted for more info,Â A Google spokesman said, “It’s a project we’re working on. But we’re not able to discuss the details right now.” Â
Before the Android stint, Miner worked with another compay which was gobbled up by Orange. Â Anyone care to guess what type of projects might be of interest to him and Google Ventures?
