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"

"Who needs Stanford Business School when you have Larry Chiang"

In The Media
By Larry Chiang
In the old days, we Asians could pick if we wanted to be good at math or chem. Now, we gotta play a sport and learn how to sell. It’s tough being an Asian founder at a Top 1B college like Stanford University, because we have to:
- Ace the SATs
- pledge a house like Kappa Sig
- play a varsity, revenue sport. Get recruited. 
- study engineering 
- Study CS in Noyes that’s taught by a TA that doesn’t speak English 
- sell advertising for the Daily Illini or Stanford Daily. (Or both, like #LarryChiang)
In short, you Asian friends of my friend “Chris” (who btw is SMART!)

You Asian kids born in 2000 and 2001, do a sequel Lemonade Stand Business…

…by selling power cords after 600 jumpers at Paly or 600 grounders w Kody #TeamKody
Basically, I am preparing you to be funded by Sequoia and the Y-combinator by teaching you the CS signature business subroutine: #dttdsBHM

CEO of Duck9, Larry (@6502838008)
‘do things that don’t scale (but have momentum)’ is NOW A FACEBOOK PHOTO ALBUM #dttdsBHM #CS183B

KNOW WHO RAY DALIO IS? was inspired by this

I am seriously Asian

The Money Equation

October 20, 2014
