Have any MAJOR, life changing, consumer tech products resulted from Venrock’s “wisdom” lately? Something that you JUST can’t live without? NOPE. Well look to Venrock’s David Pakman to see why: http://www.venrock.com/teammember/david-pakman/.
Pakman is a joke. He sits back and waits for someone else’s ideas, then he creates similar around it or “reviews” it as if he’s the friggin’ expert.
David Pakman defines this statement from Malcolm X: do your own thing successfully and see who comes running to whom. Right now, Pakman is tailing Jay Z because of Tidal. http://www.venrock.com/here-is-what-jay-z-should-have-launched-with-tidal
HOWEVER, when it comes to inner city investing, Pakman “just ain’t feelin’ it!”
Anywhooo, David Pakman should get off Jay Z’s jock because he knows full well he would want nothing to do with anyone from Marcy Projects!
