Zvi Band of Contactually Shares How To Increase Your Luck Surface Area

Is it better to be lucky than to be good? When you run a business, you definitely need some luck; hard work and dedication can increase it. Zvi Band, Founder and CEO of Contactually, believes that you need to increase your luck surface area by leveraging your network. Zvi explained this concept at last week’s Tech Cocktail DC Sessions event:

“The bigger our ‘luck surface area,’ the ‘luckier’ we seem to get. I’ve had investors who turn around and make a big introduction.  Investors connect us with other investors, other entrepreneurs connect us with journalists, and I get random emails out of the blue that offer game changing opportunities for us.”

Watch Zvi Band’s full talk at Tech Cocktail Sessions. This video was recorded as part of Tech Cocktail Sessions speaker series. We are currently offering these sessions monthly, so check our event schedule for the next event and come interact with these startup founders, entrepreneurs and thought-leaders in person.
