In case you haven't heard! Here is something everyone should know: no one should be denied funding by Venrock.com, Massey Burch or BayMark Partners, given $22 million was so casually given to Channler Drawdy, a Ponzi schemer, AFTER he defrauded others, via a Ponzi scheme.
If you are told you don't qualify for funds, then you can sue successfully, because Channler Drawdy DIDN'T qualify for funds, but was given funds anyway by Ray Rothrock and Eric Copeland, then Drawdy blew $22 million in six months. Venrock/Rockefeller didn't mind/care and wrote off the funds, literally given away, as a tax write off.
Venrock - Need some $$? Well, no one below can deny you given a Ponzi schemer was funded. And to think, Laurence Rockefeller helped start Spelman University, while his company trashed a black woman who worked her ass off, then Venrock staff laughed about her near-death experience created by their actions.

Madoff Victim Loses Millions, Forced to Clean Houses
By Jennifer Millman
When New York investment manager Bernie Madoff was charged with one of the largest fraud schemes in financial history, the lives of so many people went up in flames.
Maureen Ebel, from Philadelphia, was one of those people.The 60-year-old widow thought she had more than $7 million with Madoff, according to Philly.com. She lives outside West Chester in Philly and used to spend the winters near West Palm Beach, but Madoff left her, like many others, out in the cold.
Ebel had to get a job. So six days after Madoff was arrested in the $50 billion Ponzi scheme, she started taking care of a rich friend's 93-year-old mother and maintaining her house, vacuuming and ironing.
"The first day, I went home and cried," Ebel said.
Ebel got her first job at age 14, but now a retired nurse, she was looking forward to living comfortably. Then her husband died in 2000 at age 53 - and she still grapples with that painful loss on a regular basis.
"I was married, had a fabulous marriage to a man I loved and worshiped, a physician," Ebel said. "We traveled. We had a very fine life. And he's dead. He died, and every penny I had in the world has been stolen."
Rockefeller CEO dies of apparent suicide.
Rockefeller & Co CEO dies in apparent suicide
Tue Sep 15, 2009 4:48pm EDT

Rockefeller CEO James McDonald
BOSTON (Reuters) - James McDonald, a prominent adviser to wealthy families as chief executive of investment management group Rockefeller & Co, died in an apparent suicide,
on Sunday, local authorities said on Tuesday.
McDonald, 56, was found with a single gunshot wound in his car near a strip mall in Dartmouth, Massachusetts on Sunday afternoon. Police are still investigating.
"The preliminary investigation concludes that this was an apparent suicide," said Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter.
McDonald was credited with growing Rockefeller & Co, the New York-based family office established by oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller in 1882 to manage the dynasty's assets, into a broader investment management company with roughly $28 billion in assets.
Known as a perfectionist who drove himself and his employees hard, McDonald lived in New York City where people who worked with him said he was equally at home in corporate boardrooms and the city's most exclusive social circles.
Friends described McDonald, who earned degrees from Harvard and the University of Virginia, as a brilliant thinker who grasped difficult concepts quickly and had a vision to expand the company.
Several people who knew him professionally said on Tuesday that they were shocked by the news, noting they had no knowledge about any specific problems at Rockefeller & Co that might have prompted the death.
A spokesman at the Securities and Exchange Commission declined to comment on whether McDonald or the firm was facing any inquiries. In Massachusetts, where the state securities regulator has waged an aggressive campaign against investment advisers who were cheating clients, there is no investigation into McDonald or the company, a spokesman for Secretary of State William Galvin said.
The people, however, spoke of the mounting pressures McDonald faced while running an investment management business during exceedingly difficult financial market conditions.
Earlier this year, McDonald was one of the directors who left the board of lender CIT Group.
The directors cited the increased demands related to CIT becoming a bank holding company in December 2008 and time constraints related to each of their other professional commitments and responsibilities as their reasons for leaving, according to a CIT proxy.
McDonald was married with a son and daughter and had homes on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and in Boston.
Rockefeller & Co confirmed the death in a short statement but declined to give further details. It said Austin Shapard, the company's chief operating officer and chief financial officer, was now running the company.

Venture capitalists AND their funders are still at it!It's Silicon Valley Bank this time, same pattern as before, with epic fraud and waste bailed out in 2008, after warning after warning sent to SEC AND Capitol Hill lawmakers. And no one gave a shit then, including while bailing out toxic companies. https://www.reuters.com/business/finance/silicon-valley-bank-collapse-what-you-need-know-2023-03-15/

Anyone noticed that https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/minimum-wage/history/chart ↔ the federal minimum wage stopped increasing RIGHT AFTER the epic 2008 bailout of folks who squandered billions, at taxpayers and FDIC banks' expense?
Asking, for the "woke" folks.
In 1980s, I had my own apartment at 18, while making minimum wage. And so many of us were working before 18 to survive, and also working while in school. If our parents could afford college, our first apartment would have been a dorm room, and we still had to save or work for meals and books.
We were the latchkey kids who had to learn how to come home to/from school, alone, cook breakfast - on a stove, do homework, keep house clean, be home by x-time, and appreciate the things we had, because we saw how tired and defeated our parents were at times. Our parents didn't have many job options, while facing at-will termination at any given moment.
And many of us came home to abuse or silence, because of parents' unresolved issues, or the untimely death of a parent (overworked with no healthcare, war, and/OR injustices and other violence), or sheer exhaustion from being forced to work longer hours than others (mental health). All while putting up with on-the-job-racists, who sat around and complained about Affirmative Action.
And now, we just want to see kids SAFE, happy, happy with themselves, with respect for one another. But that's a problem, because that would require all to feel safe and compensated. 🤔 Is it too soon to bring up that bailed out, #TaxCutsAndJobsAct-benefactor Dan Grossman failed up from Venrock to Amazon, while Amazon workers are complaining about pay, working conditions, benefits and more?
Sh*t, life is hard, but shockingly easy for some, who complain, with lobbyists in tow, about wages, healthcare (for workers), earned benefits, and racial history, equality and civil rights.
