David Cohen Founder and CEO TechStars, angel investor and former entrepreneur
Cohen discussed the qualities that make him want to immediately invest in an entrepreneur. Specifically, he described one entrepreneur and his team: “They understood the problem just technically, they had experienced the problem, they were pissed off about it, [and] their level of technical understanding of what they were trying to accomplish was very, very high. And every time [Cohen] had talked with them, [he] was more impressed than last time.
 It’s just passion and it’s knowledge of the space, and the interaction from meeting to meeting being better and better every time [that encouraged him to invest]”.
