Inspiration, bathrooms, and entrepreneurs
“The best ideas often come at inconvenient times. Don't ever close your mind to them.” Brad Feld
That quote is on a wall plaque just outside of the Brad Feld men’s room on the second floor of the ATLAS building in the University of Colorado at Boulder. How he wound up donating $25,000 to name a bathroom is an great story, which you can read here.
However, it’s even more fun to hear an entrepreneur and venture capitalist like Brad tell a story. He did so in four minutes at Idavation (the Idaho Innovation conference) at the Doubletree hotel in Boise on May 28. The video of his keynote speech is here, and his bathroom story starts at about the 54 minute mark.
