Interest: When you are an entrepreneur who needs to create products that don’t look like they came out of a 300 square foot garage, where do you turn? To a ‘maker space’, a business center/co-working space of sorts, that has the exact tools you need. Instead of paying a few hundred thousand dollars for the equipment you need, you might pay a few hundred dollars to use the equipment and have the space to meet with your colleagues to plan your next move.

And there are plenty of dollars for Mr Maris to keep track of – since it launched in 2009, Google Ventures has invested some $1.5bn dollars in around 250 US tech businesses including Uber and “smart” thermostat pioneer Nest, which was acquired by Google for $3.2bn (£2bn) in January.

That’s nearly a 10% increase from the $2.6 billion NEA raised for Fund 14 in the summer of 2012, which itself was the industry’s record-holder (just edging out a $2.56 billion fund raised in 2006 by Oak Investment Partners).
