After just over a year and a half since leaving TechCrunch full-time and launching CrunchFund as a partner, prominent tech columnist and investor MG Siegler announced today that he is joining the muscle investment group that is Google Venture as a general partner.
Seigler will focus on seed and early stage investments, according to Google.
He will continue to work with his partners at CrunchFund to support the investments they have already made, including a few products that have not yet been made public.
MG Siegler writing on his blog:
Google Ventures sits in a truly unique space within the venture capital industry. They have the resources to make investments at any stage, but more importantly, they have the talent and knowledge required to do so. The partnership is brimming with experience when it comes to starting companies, building products, and scaling.
The firm also has teams in place to help with basically everything an entrepreneur could ever need. These are the highest caliber people in their respective fields all working under one roof to help the portfolio.
Primarily, I’ll still be focusing on seed and early stage investing working alongside partners Wesley Chan and Kevin Rose. I’ll also continue to work closely with CrunchFund to help with the investments we’ve made.
Notable CrunchFund investments include the popular Mailbox client for iOS as well as the social network Path.
Google Venture offered a warm welcome to its newest partner:
