Reissuing the release to remove the Google Ventures boilerplate.

The corrected release reads:

JENNIFER JONES TO INTERVIEW DAVID KRANE, GENERAL PARTNER OF GOOGLE VENTURES

IBF board member and award-winning marketing expert Jennifer Jones, CEO of
Jennifer Jones & Partners, to interview Krane at IBF’s Corporate Venturing and
Innovation Partnering Conference, Newport Beach, Feb. 13

It’s safe to say that Google flows through David Krane’s veins as much as
anyone working at the Internet giant. Having joined the senior leadership team
in 2000, he helped grow Google from a small startup to a multi-billion dollar,
industry-leading enterprise.

Google’s unique culture and broad goal of organizing the world’s information
has spawned an equally unique and vibrant independent venture arm, where Krane
is a general partner.

As Krane blogged recently, Google Ventures has been growing across all
metrics: last year it boosted its annual investment level to $300 million,
increased its portfolio size to 150 companies, and grew its team to 60 people.

The corporate venturing arm last year invested the biggest chunks of it money
in mobile and consumer Internet technologies. But it also invested
significantly in commerce, Big Data, life sciences and energy startups.

Where will Google Ventures focus its investment dollars next? Join Jennifer
Jones, an IBF advisory board member and founder and CEO of Jennifer Jones &
Partners, an award-winning global marketing firm for corporate venture capital
and venture/private equity firms, as she sits down with Krane to discuss
Google Ventures’ uniquely hands-on approach to fostering startups, its
educational initiatives and its goals for 2013 and beyond. The fireside chat
will take place Feb. 13 at 9:30AM at IBF’s 15th annual Corporate Venturing and
