This is the kind of news that just makes you wanna vomit all over yourself in utter disgust.
Disturbed and Device frontman David Draiman has revealed he is the co-founder and CEO of a new tech startup called Wingman, meaning his coffers will only expand.
Also involved with the company is Jeff Pulver, the co-founder of Vonage — one of the biggest and earliest VoIP companies — and Zula, a WhatsApp for businesses.
Pulver was even an early investor in Twitter, Foursquare and Facebook.
This is Wingman’s mission statement:
“We are proud to have the opportunity to share with you a vision. A vision based on creating a positive and incredibly valuable tool; utilizing technology to bring people together, encouraging more meaningful, and valuable, true human connections and interactions.
“In today’s digital world, the answers are right in front of you, if you only had the right tool to help you find them… It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, or where you come from. At one time or another in all of our lives, we all need a Wingman.”
Said Draiman about the venture:
“It is a social network of sorts that also blends location-based services. It’s a means of finding whomever you’re looking for, whatever purpose you’re searching for them for.”
Wingman sounds like it should be an app that helps you land pussy. But alas, it isn’t. It’ll still make Draiman more money than either of us is likely to ever see.
