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"

June 14, Networking with VCs

by Larry Chiang on June 14, 2024

The White Party is finally here, and we’re thrilled to celebrate with you tonight at Superstition at 8pm! We expect around 1,000 friends to come. Watch our @tandtpresent stories for the latest updates and photos of the night as they are taken of everyone.

Just a quick reminder about the dress code: Dress Code: All-White Perfection! 


Tops and Bottoms: Wear solid white – no color patterns or designs.

Accessories: Feel free to get creative with colorful or patterned accessories.

For more details, check our IG post so we avoid any disappointment at the door. We will have the fashion police at the door to make sure everyone follows the dress code.

Now, let’s talk perks for early birds: 

Arrive at 8pm to avoid long lines. Every year we have a line around the block. Upgrade to VIP tickets to get in faster and access to the upstairs. If you want to upgrade to VIP at the venue, talk to one of our hosts at the door.

We have a special red carpet photographer between 8 and 9pm to take professional photos of you, your friends, and signficant other. Everyone will think you just attended the Oscars!

We also have a red carpet reporter during this time. She will ask you about your outfit and a few questions so be ready to be seen on our live stream during the first hour and show off your outfit to everyone! They’ll think you’re a celebrity for attending this event.

And…we have a very special magazine shoot happening in the first hour. Imagine yourself on the cover of Vogue. Looking all glam and like you’re a big deal. Well, it’s happening in the first hour too! 

You’ll want to arrive early to be part of the action. We also have a special announcement at 9pm you won’t want to miss.

We’ve spent hundreds of hours on this event. We can’t wait for you to see what else we have in store for you. But you’ll have to be there early to see it all happening. 

See you tonight at the White Party – don’t forget your ticket and a party-ready attitude!

Your vibe curators, 

-Tim and Thanh

P.S. Share your favorite moments by tagging us @tandtpresent. Let’s spread the excitement! We’ll repost everyone who tags us and promote it to our followers
