Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of ROI

Google Ventures 2013 Year in Review

And what a year it was.


Google Ventures put together a video showcasing their portfolio of companies they have invested in over the past year. And while there are many notables on the list of 75 new investments covering 225 companies, one in particular stood out to me. And that was FitStar. “Why FitStar?” you may ask.

Well, FitStar bills itself as “The #1 personal training app for the iPad. Now on your iPhone.” Interestingly enough, Google is investing in a company that is not available on the Android platform.

You can see the full video here: along with a great interactive infographic that shows the impact that these companies have had.
