SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- INVENT Ventures, Inc.

"We are thrilled to invest in Sanguine alongside Heliant Ventures and to further reinforce our holdings in what we believe are the next generation of exciting young technology companies," said Bryce Knight , CEO of INVENT. "With Sanguine, Virurl and our other portfolio companies, we have strong positions in technology businesses that are readily scalable, and we believe that each has the potential to go public if they elect to. Considering the vast value creation ability of technology companies, private and public investors alike are looking for exposure to early-stage technology, and we are very excited to be in a position to fulfill this need."
