Google Capital will be led by partners David Lawee, Scott Tierney and Gene Frantz, and, according to a Bloomberg report, has $300 million to invest. Its website lists an investment team of 10 people and three current investments: SurveyMonkey, Lending Club and Renaissance Learning.

Google Capital will invest across a range of industries and draw on Google employees to help portfolio companies.
