Erlich Bachman

A man of the hour. He sold his company Aviato. Now, he runs an incubator out of his house which also happens to be where Pied Piper is headquartered in. He invested in a few other ideas which never came to fruition. He played a critical role in coming up with an innovative and truly disruptive dick jerk algorithm.

In season two, he helps Richard raise a seed round by going around negging a bunch of investors.

There's no need for an example. He is the verb, noun and the everything else that matters in this world.
