在经济不景气的时候也许就是企业发展和壮大的时机,看着对手一个一个倒下,把敌人一个一个的收复或者接收更多的新兵;所有这些的前提是你足够的强大。现在的Google就是一个典型。当然还有很多公司,在大家都开始裁员的时候大量的招人。Google Ventures 是Google公司推出一个说明平台,这个平台的功能为零,不过作用却非常大。

Google Ventures seeks to discover and grow great companies – we believe in the power of entrepreneurs to do amazing things. We’re studying a broad range of industries, including consumer Internet, software, hardware, clean-tech, bio-tech and health care. We invest anywhere from seed to mezzanine stage and embrace the challenge of helping young companies grow from the garage to global relevance.

Our team includes entrepreneurs, investors and innovators, along with some 20,000+ exceptional Googlers whose breadth of knowledge, experience and creativity constitute perhaps our own most valuable resource. You don’t have to be a potential Google acquisition for us to want to work with you; we’re out to build great companies, period. We look forward to learning whether yours is one of them.
