Former Yahoo VP/Yahoo Music GM Dave Goldberg is joining Benchmark Capital, a
Menlo Park, Ca.-based venture capital firm, as an entrepreneur in residence. In his new role, Goldberg will evaluate potential Benchmark investments in music, video, and digital content. He also will provide advisory services to existing Benchmark-funded companies.

Bruce Dunlevie, general partner at Benchmark says Goldberg's experience in the music business and digital media "will prove invaluable to us as we work to identify the technologies, trends, and companies that hold the greatest promise for tomorrow."

Goldberg co-founded Launch.com in 1994 and led the company until it was acquired by Yahoo! in 2001 and became Yahoo Music.

Prior to that he was director of marketing strategy and new business development at Capitol Records.
