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"

Phone Sex as a CS Major Undergrad

by Larry Chiang on April 18, 2014

By Larry Chiang
The thought of CS majors giving phone sex gets me excited as an investor.
Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
Give good phone?

Giving good phone is a business concept that sounds dirty. It’s about taking well on the phone.
Why speak well on the phone.
38% of communication is tonality
55% is physiology
ONLY 7% is the words.
Let me repeat. When you email, your words suck at convincing.
Emails with words only doesnt work as well at asking for a legendary internship.
Emails with words only doesnt work as well at getting a VC you don’t know to mentor you

Emails with words only doesnt work as well to execute the booty call subroutine. Remember, even a Facebook message at 2am is referred to as a “Booty call”.

Learn to give good phone by
- Learning to close a deal via voicemail
- setting aside the phone sex thing
- Practice by calling me, 650-283-8008
ENGR145′s a big help to CS majors 
If you’re an LP reading this. This is how you get alpha returns. When the deal flow of CS majors actually pays for itself. Literally.

Plus it’s so funny that everyone over at your LP shop huddles around and reads it!!! :-) ) Engage, cookies (monster)
