A Ruined Silk Blouse Is Like a Startup Bankruptcy

By Larry Chiang

Abandonment. This is a problem in the startup community. PG speaks to this in his essay default alive or default dead.

But we do …

SXSW Party THURS

Hi there,

I am Larry – Its nice to meet you via Email. I am looking forward to meeting you. Sorry if this email has typos as I am banging it out on two thumbs sans spellcheck

This event is sold out and will be full. If you cannot make it, please email me back. Also, I would like to interact with you before the event

– What kind of goals do you have for sxsw.
– Did you have a great sxsw, last year.
– What hump can sxsw help you cross
– If I were to invite you to dinner at the same location from 745pm-9, would you have a $15 budget?

Look, thank you for reading all the way down this far… From 745-9pm, me and some friends are going to preparty with a dinner. My treat. To hold your spot for the 15 dollar dinner, PayPal me $10 to my email, “LarryChiang@duck9.com”. When you show up btwn 720-8pm, I will refund your ten bucks and treat you to dinner. Its rebated IF you show up because coordinating a big table reservation is a pain 😉

Alternatively, you can just show up at 730 to be waitlisted for dinner but
– it wont be free
– 2, there may not be room

OK. So there are a crap ton of silicon Valley investors wanting entry into this party. If you want to wrangle these bay area investors in…, I will let you keep 100% of the sponsorship fee that YOU charge them.

Yes!!

Crazy, isn’t it!?!!

Let me repeat, for all sponsorships you sell. You keep 100%

At past events, I collected money at the door for last minute RSVPs. The event was already profitable so the door money was ALL GRAVY. So, I let my volunteers split the door 50-50.

Here, I will let you split the $$$ 0-100. I get $0. You get 100%

Let me know what you sell the sponsor for and I willl make them a button. For example, you sell Sequoia on a $2000, I will make a button for 2000. I am doing this because touching money and passing thru money is the detail of money that verrrrry few people get correct.

I am sure you have questions. I have a cellphone number that is pretty much everywhere

— Larry

P.S. Investors are emailing me and if you respond to this email, I will parse out the email leads as I get them in chronological order

Melissa McCarthy donned a blond, short-cropped wig and an ill-fitting suit, just like Spicer was mocked for the day after the inauguration. twitter.com/nprpolitics/st…

The Dangers Of Being Everyone’s Unanimous #1 Lottery Pick

leave a comment »

By Larry Chiang

This article will probably rub a lot of beta males the wrong way. But in a way, this pays homage, deference and even reverence to you, loser-beta-males.

As an alpha male, I’m writing about the dangers of being everyone’s #1 lottery pick. Every fraternity’s unanimous #1, selection. There. Are. Numerous. Dangers.

Danger #1: Assuming you’re a winner, in perpetuity.

ZN0VKUOa_normal.jpgLarry Chiang (@LarryChiang)1/18/17, 2:03 PM
I just pledged a house {Kappa sigma}. But I remember “losers” who started their own house. I bet those ‘losers’ are #winning now #uiucEweek

Danger #2: feeling superior to those not drafted.

At the time, it seemed like they were leftover people. But they did something after being passed over by 55 houses. #UDFA twitter.com/larrychiang/st…

Danger #3 When You’re Everyone’s Unanimous #1 Lottery Pick: failure to realize that there are more #UDFA‘s in the Hall of Fame than #1 picks.
