Dave Feldman Joins CrunchFund As First Entrepreneur-In-Residence

I’m happy to announce that Dave Feldman has joined CrunchFund as our first Entrepreneur-In-Residence (EIR).

Dave has deep product and engineering experience. Most recently he was at AOL as Senior Director, Special Projects. He volunteered to lead the TechCrunch rebuild last year despite the fact that he worked in a completely separate group under Brad Garlinghouse and did a spectacular job getting the various internal and external designers and engineers to work together (just to be clear, this was one of his least challenging technical efforts). He was well known at AOL as an excellent product executive who didn’t mind getting his hands dirty in the actual code while dealing with the internal politics that come with any large organization. His team was particularly loyal to him.

Prior to AOL Dave was Director of User Experience at Yahoo. He has a computer science degree from Harvard.

When Dave left AOL a few months ago we talked about his desire to build his own company. He’s knee deep in that process now, although he’s still figuring out the team and final product. We’re honored to have him join us as he continues that journey, and look forward to tapping into his leisure time to help us with all this venture capital stuff.

You can follow Dave on Twitter here, and at his personal blog Operation Project.
