|Or anyone you've known?|
It's one of the first things you learn, at least via US-centric entrepreneur/VC lessons: get a warm intro from someone they know. Just because they have an office or a public e-mail or LinkedIn, don't use it.
Well, has anyone just said screw it, or not known, and cold-contacted investors with any level of success? I imagine some eventually successful entrepreneurs really do start with zero network, and come from disconnected backgrounds.
