Genuinely random recruiters, no, but if you might be hiring for something outside of your personal skill set, it's worth having connections with recruiters in those fields, if you may do a startup in the future.

I'd have a hard time hiring great enterprise sales people on my own; it's worth it for me to talk to enterprise sales recruiters infrequently and to seek out great enterprise sales managers as contacts.

Same for finance people, etc.
