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"

Larry Chiang, Hot Guy

by Larry Chiang on April 28, 2015

By Larry Chiang
Normally I blog as “CEO of Duck9″ or as Stanford University’s, “Founding Entrepreneur in Residence”. Me and my great brain might be on the short list for a Nobel Re my fantastic #CTCFTR body of work. 
#CTCFTR: ‘Cross the Chasm From the Right’ means you DJ this bathing suit w/an API, sell-alter-promote an existing product, customize to a vertical & do a NYFW launch party. 
Anyway, this post isn’t about being CEO or EIR. I’m writing this as a hawt Silicon Valley guy. Supermodel. Hetero. Silicon Valley. Waist-deep in SF summer sun dresses. Going to great VC parties like Rothenberg Ventures:

OH “What credit score is needed to date Larry Chiang, 11:11!?” 
Let’s break down why this question is so awesome.
/Testimonial 1/ the person asking the question obviously knows my hot buttons. Pun intended. She reads my feed so you know she knows how to read. Which is a plus. 
Radical Fact 2/ she slaps in “11:11″ as if she knows what she’s talking about. [11:11 is my algorithm that I bequeathed to the world. I had to cast aside almost 200 IQ pts and dumb all the way down to an IQ of 88 on my CrunchBase bio. Yup, I sell credit prep svcs to college coeds]
Larry CHIANG ANSWER: While I am neck deep in puddy that is on-deck, having a high FICO credit score cannot hurt your chances. The likelihood is LOW. What I am saying is that you have a better chance of being 
- the first ncaa female baseball pitcher to…
- toss a “no-no” at Stanford 
- while graduating co-term in CS with an econ major backdoor while 
- simultaneously backdoorUnicornIng a startup of FloMo (not at StartX ;-)
YOUR chances are low if you’re looking to date me
Your chances of getting a FICO over 790 are high if you text me
Social security number transmission is counterintuitively more safe via USA postal service. Safety in solitude.

I did a stint inside my entrepreneurship practice called “gender reversal entrepreneurship exercises”. The result: 5 Women 2.0 blog posts that might win me an effen “Poets Surprise”
Say that 10 times fast ‘Poets Surprise’
I also immersed myself in the company of women. There are a bunch of “selfie, no-Self’s” inside my feed curated by #SelfieNoSelf (no TM)
They call these houses in America “sorority”
Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
I came up with #BCSEUTWMPPM bc sorority girls were in trouble with low credit card credit FICO scores (in bed) ……

Have you seen “house bunny”. That movie is GOOD

Btw, I don’t meet with undergrads one-on-one. Been burned too many times on THAT maneuver. But if you bring your dad, as a coed, I-am-all-in

I read five books before their corresponding authors networking parties. Also known as ‘book signings’. Then, I extrapolated all 5 authors seminal tomes into one-blog-post: The Fifth Epiphany.  […]
