Larry Chiang, President and CEO


I'll shoot you w/a nerf gun if you don't manage your credit.

11:11 is my goal of getting duck9 consumers lots of 1s.

24 1's in a row equals a 750 FICO.

A "one" is an on-time payment in credit reporting code.

A '9'=charged off bad-debt. You wanna duck 9s.

Duck9 = Deep Underground Credit Knowledge (Duck 9's on your credit report. 9's are charge-offs)

"Making sure college credit virgins get deflowered right since 2004"

"Larry Chiang is an expert at the dark art of FICO score preparation"

Winning SXSW Using Best of SXSW

by Larry Chiang on July 29, 2014

Larry Chiang is a self funded entrepreneur as is his co-founder. He has a JBA (Jedi in Business Administration) and after a Harvard Business School event, they wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“. He taught an entrepreneurship class at Stanford University as an EIR (Entrepreneur in Residence) and now teaches us how to self fund a trip to SXSW by “Winning SXSW Using the Best of SXSW.



By Larry Chiang

Every legendary result I have created, I can help you reverse engineer.

It helps if you’re an engineer and realize that startups are hard work. For example, there is tedious Eventbrite work to do before SXSW.

Plot spoiler: You’re going to host a 2-10 person event in the city you live in months before SXSW.

Attending SXSW for at least 36 hours

One party you will co-host at the Four Seasons.

Cost = free. Its March 6. One minute after midnight March 6 (aka Thursday night)

Best of SXSW
- How to launch at sxsw for 217.oo
- How to launch at SXSW on a shoestring budget

Execute 3-5 things and then text me.

Oh. I am doing a Jan 15-16 event in SF that will cost you nothing since you will use Starwood points. Hint: its good for reselling VCs housing at SXSW cuz VCs are wayyyyyyyyy to lazy to book.

I calculate with my 88 IQ that SXSW will take place in March.
March 2015.
FRI to Wed.
Gawd, its the same every year. I win every year.

My SXSW Method to Get Selected for “Panel Picker” 2015

July 24, 2014

By Larry Chiang  I’ve always wondered about SXSW content. If it was so awesome, why wait 6-8 months? I’ve also always wondered about the GMAT. I mean why ace a test just to wait 12-38 months for knowledge you need now (OB, fin & accy. Organizational behavior, finance, accounting). Why wait? I’ve also wondered by […]
