DISTURBED/DEVICE frontman David Draiman is the co-founder and CEO of a new tech startup called Wingman. Also involved with the company is Jeff Pulver, the co-founder in Vonage, one of the biggest and earliest VoIP companies around, and Zula, a WhatsApp for businesses. Pulver was also an early investor in Twitter, Foursquare and Facebook.
Wingman's mission statement is as follows: "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."
Draiman recently stated about Wingman: "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 purporse you're searching for them for."
Draiman was interviewed on the March 31 edition of the "Risk And Reward With Deirdre Bolton" program on the Fox Business channel. You can now watch video footage of his appearance below.
