THIS JUST IN: In Silicon Valley’s version of “The Bachelor,” Anne Wojcicki not only landed one of America’s richest men, Sergey Brin, a co-founder of Google, but she also got her husband’s company to finance her start-up.
Google said Tuesday that it invested $3.9 million this month in 23andMe, the biotech company co-founded last year by Ms. Wojcicki, a former health care industry analyst.
Google’s investment was disclosed in a regulatory filing, which also officially confirmed that Mr. Brin, 33, and Ms. Wojcicki are married, so reports The New York Times.
Did George H not begat George W? Did Bill not spawn Hillary?
“Our audit committee requested that we disclose this in order to be completely transparent with our investors about the facts underlying this investment,” said Jon Murchinson, a Google spokesman.
Transparent, really? Anne is following in Sergey's non-transparent Google footsteps:
The company had declined to comment on the couple’s relationship.
Reached by telephone, Ms. Wojcicki declined to comment further.
The total amount of the Series A financing was not disclosed.
All is fair in love and war, AND BIG BUSINESS?
