Dogpatch Labs has a new “entrepreneur in residence (EIR).”, Matt Meeker, the co-founder of Meetup.com.
Polaris says that Mr. Meeker will coordinate among entrepreneurs and startup founders. By his own reckoning, Meeker will “nurture innovation and expose it to as much like-minded entrepreneurial spirit as possible.”
That’s fancy talk for sourcing great deals to Polaris and being their public face (as well as eyes and ears) in the New York tech community.
Mr. Meeker may have his eyes on the path taken by Charlie O’Donnell, who was entrepreneur in residence for First Round Capital before becoming a principal late last year.
