This week on Ask A VC, we are thrilled to have Google Ventures’ general partner and Android co-founder Rich Miner in the studio. You can submit questions for our guest either in the comments or here and we’ll ask them during the show.
Miner, who leads Google Ventures’ East Coast investment team, has backed HubSpot, MessageMe, Stamped (acquired by Yahoo), ThinkNear (Acquired by TeleNav), Adelphic, UberConference, Crittercism, Divide, and Custom Made.
Miner came to Google through the acquisition of Android. During his early years at Google, he helped lead the development of the Android platform and ecosystem. Prior to Android, Miner was a vice president at Orange, where he led R&D activities in North America and was an original principal at Orange Ventures when it was founded. Miner came to Orange through the acquisition of another company he co-founded, Wildfire, which developed a voice-based personal assistant.
Considering his experience and investments, we’ll be asking Miner about mobile, mobile, and more mobile!
