Google Ventures CEO Bill Maris quits
11 August 2016 Current Affairs: Bill Maris, the chief executive and founder of Alphabet Inc's venture capital arm GV, is leaving the company on 8 august 2016.

GV, previously known as Google Ventures, was founded in 2009 and has invested in more than 300 companies including Uber Technologies Inc and online retailer Jet.com, according to GV's website. 

Alphabet's projects have seen some high-profile departures in recent months. Chris Urmson, chief technical officer for its self-driving car project, left last week, while Anthony Levandowski, product manager for the program, left earlier this year to co-found a startup. 

Tony Fadell, a well-known Silicon Valley executive who was once expected to play a central role in Alphabet's hardware efforts, stepped down as chief executive of its Nest unit in June.
