CRV Taps F— Creator

Charles River Ventures, a venture firm with offices in Waltham, MA, and Menlo Park, CA, has recruited F— creator Philip Kaplan to be an entrepreneur-in-residence at the firm, VentureWire reports. Kaplan, aka “Pud,” tells the VC news service that he plans to evaluate tech companies in the context of venture investing rather than slamming them on his former website, F—, which gained a strong following during the dot-com bubble in the early 2000s. More recently, Kaplan founded online advertising firm, AdBrite, according to VentureWire.
