What the greatest technology investors say about the Big Picture-Macro View

 

Many Successful People are Deliberate about Randomness

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
