Running Remote Design Sprints | AUTOMATTIC DESIGN (FLOW RIP)
I lead a team of designers who work on and other products. Last year, my team ran our first design sprint together in-person at a team meetup. It was a great way to kick off a new project and we became instant fans of the format.

After Leaving Google, Bill Maris Is Set to Open New Fund - The New York Times
By MICHAEL J. de la MERCED MAY 16, 2017
Mr. Maris announced on Tuesday that he has opened a new fund, Section 32, with about $150 million under management. It will invest in a variety of industries, from health care to agriculture technology.

“I left GV and knew that I wanted to start a fund of my own,” he said in a telephone interview. “My whole career has been about building things from scratch. I just wanted to do it at a different scale.”

How GV handles the unsexy part of growing startups
I first met Rick Klau and Ken Norton several years ago when they were running a program called Startup Lab — on behalf of Google Ventures (now GV) — a venture capital firm along the lines of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Greylock, Andreessen Horowitz, and Sequoia Capital. At the time, the two worked to mentor the investment firm’s portfolio companies, offering advice on everything from design to product management, along with resources to grow the startups.

The Lessons Google Ventures Learned From Secret
For many in Silicon Valley, the rapid rise and precipitous fall of Secret, the prominent start-up that recently closed its doors, will most likely serve as a cautionary tale of how not to run a company.

Bill Maris: Secret was 'like a bank heist'
Google Ventures' managing partner Bill Maris told The New York Times that Secret's decision to raise another round of financing worth $25 million just a few months after raising its first round — which Google Ventures participated in — was one of the main reasons it decided to not re-up its participation.

"We advised them against it...And raising that much money that soon, it was going to be impossible to meet the expectations in the future," Maris told the Times. 

Despite the warnings, Secret cofounders David Byttow and Chrys Bader went on to raise the $25 million, and reportedly pocketed $3 million each for their own personal use.

"It's like a bank heist," Maris said. "That's not how you do a startup."

The sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Developed at Google Ventures, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more — packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.
