Sec­tion 32: Ex-Google ven­ture chief Maris pur­sues in­die role with $230M biotech fund

As Bill Maris pre­pared to de­part from his high-pro­file po­si­tion as chief of Google’s ven­ture arm, now called GV, he shrugged off ques­tions about his next ca­reer act. But sources are telling Re­code that he’s al­ready well along the way to set­ting up an in­de­pen­dent, $230 mil­lion fund of his own, where he’ll be go­ing back to pur­su­ing a deep in­ter­est in biotech and health­care.

The new group is called Sec­tion 32, an ev­i­dent ref­er­ence to the au­tonomous Sec­tion 31 in­tel­li­gence group fea­tured in Star Trek. In keep­ing with the tech in­dus­try’s deep re­luc­tance to dis­cuss any­thing about new pro­grams or tech­nolo­gies that have yet to be prepped for pub­lic con­sump­tion, Maris wasn’t talk­ing on Mon­day.
