NYT profiles iFundÂ’s Matt MurphyThe New York Times has posted an interesting profile on Matt Murphy, the venture capitalist at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers that oversees the iFund.

Kleiner established the US$100 million iFund to invest in start-ups specializing in iPhone applications.

So far this year, Mr. Murphy and his partners at Kleiner have received 2,500 business plans for potential iPhone application start-ups and they have invested in four.

So far iFund has financed the companies Ngmoco and Gogii, a company called iControl that makes it easier to monitor homes while away and a soon-to-be-announced company that creates virtual worlds that one enters through the phone.
