I wanted to call itWhat They Don't Teach You at MIT Sloan School of BusinessBut it seemed rude.Hi there, I am Larry Chiang.Who I am is unimportant.What I know is majorly important and mission critical. I teach Stanford engineers how to be street smart. My motto is engineers dont let engineers graduate without street smarts. It allowed me and my state school education to climb to the top of the venture heap and force tier one VCs to pay to pitch me (yeah, I started the ReverseVC franchise)Scandalously, I launched a NY Times bestselling book from the supermodel runway at Mercedes Benz fashion week and landed it on the google homepage on 09-09-09 at 909am EST. Yes, I started Duck9 and love 9s. I also spoke at Harvard Law School on the topic: What They Don't Teach You at Stanford Business School. HBS wrote about it too. Stanford GSB laughed it off.
Anyway, this is what I wanna talk about- How to hack a conference and speak at an event that youre not even invited to
- How to pick up VCs at networking functions and get a cell phone number in under two minutes
- How to host, organize and promote a MVP (minimum viable party. Its like minimum viable product. Yeah Eric Reis is a mentor)
- How to get major media, without really trying very hard
Ch 7 of my second favorite book: "You can lose money chasing ass. You can never lose ass chasing money.“Remember, you may not learn anything. But you'll laugh hard enough that boogers may come out of your nose.
Seriously, my goal is for you to get your entire ROI this school year out of my one hour session. My goal is to lop off one third of your Sloan tuition debt by the end of the week
PS If you're foreign and you think that this sound weird and unprofessional... wake up! This keynote is meant to be a vacation. Remember, I am Chinese and I want to look at a 5th generation red-neck hick in the eyes and tell him to be more effen American. Being more American than America is "What They Don't Teach You at Tai Da" when they're prepping your TOEFL score*** BIO ***Larry is a founder of Duck9.
