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"

from Paul Thompson, Founder Scottish American Capital

Harvard Business School '09

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

from David Rohrsheim, Draper Fisher Jurvetson

BASES Startup Career Fair #15Jan15 January 15, 2015

by Larry Chiang on October 20, 2014

By Larry Chiang

As EIR emeritus at age 32, it means I was fired. Maybe I shouldn’t have abdicated my lecture to an athlete-student ( :-)

As a scandalous Buck Cardinal club member who’s never broken a rule or profited one, dime… I am administering an AP (Accelerated Placement) test for startup-entrepreneurship to build awareness for Jan 15’s Bases event

The AP test is based 100% on this video.

(I’m not affiliated with the college board nor do I AP test for CLEP. I simply took AP tests so I could graduate faster-better-harder as a Chemical engineer) I AP test as an exEIR

Jan 15, 2015 will pattern replicate this 2013 event.

ENGR145 has a bell curve De la “entrepreneur bell curve”

To get “AP” question #1, text me I’m ceo. 

At BASES Startup Career Fair, I solve a PROBLEM.

21:15. “You’re more like to succeed if you wait”
- Paul Graham. #CS183B min 21, sec, 15 at…

U should google “purposeful accidental entrepreneur”

At Bases Jan 15, I’m amplifying 5, 7 hour internships. 

Yes, it’s an internship that lasts seven hours. 

Problem solved. 

Problem was, PG of Y-Combinator said wait to be a startup…
Solution: purposefully be an Accidental Entrepreneur. 
Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
“Pet project”, I translate into ‘purposeful Accidental Entrepreneur’… …

When I say pet project. You should correlate it to be a PhD thesis in buttocks kicking validated at a school in the Boston area

And at sxsw for those same Harvard kids

Don’t blame me cuz I listened to Steve Blank!

Pop Up Internship #2 (Direct from Steve Blank) “Go to a trade show even if it’s not in your industry.”…

holy ‘Naperville Park District’, batman! Pop Up Internship #2 is at Cosmo. #vegas…

No all y’all can’t crash in my Westin hotel suite!

See you at 11:30am at Westin hotel downtown Palo Alto
And then 1:10pm at Stanford. I’ll have special guests at the bases table. Look for the Duck9

The Money Equation

October 20, 2014
