Section 32 invests in companies and inventors that are changing the way humans use technology and the way technology betters humanity. Section 32 is led by Bill Maris.


We don’t have a manifesto, we just invest in things we think are fun, smart, and exciting, and hopefully make the world a little bit better along the way. Here is an evolving list of companies we support.



Hi, I’m Bill Maris. That’s my photo. I’m an investor and Star Trek enthusiast. Ok, let’s be honest, I’m mostly a Star Trek enthusiast. In a past life, I was founder and CEO of Google Ventures and before that I did some other things.

But enough about me. I couldn’t do any of this without my amazing team. There’s Jenn Kercher, our COO & General Counsel, Lindsey Acharya, our Executive Assistant, and Vanessie Christensen, our Office Manager.


Section 32 is based in California.
