David Cohen Founder and CEO TechStars, angel investor and former entrepreneur
“Many  successful people  are very deliberate about randomness [like Brad Feld].  Brad has regularly held “random days” when he’ll meet anyone to talk about anything .” That’s how TechStars arose when Cohen met Feld on a random day.
“Being open to randomness is about more than just taking meetings . It’s the idea of trying something you really have no reason to try. Recognize  that someone you meet or something that you do might ultimately be able to help you in some completely unexpected way. If you’re not open to randomness, you may miss a huge opportunity .” David Cohen, Do More Faster by David Cohen & Brad Feld, copyrt 2011, pg. 109-110
