Blackstone Ventures, any news on BX VC fund since 2017Q1 Earnings Call Comments?

Title pretty much.

I was wondering if Blackstone has started building out its team for the venture capital fund they mentioned on their 2017 Q1 Earnings call (alongside the Infrastructure fund they mentioned that they have started building out)?

Are they still in the fundraising process, or are they re-evaluating whether to go into VC at all or not?
