Citi Developer Challenge, Larry Chiang’s Fee’s $28.8k

by Larry Chiang on October 1, 2014

Larry Chiang has real skills with a made up degree: Jedi in Business Administration (JBA). After Chiang’s Harvard Law keynote, Harvard Business wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“ WTDTYASBS is the sequel title to his mentor’s book that is also a NY Times best seller. To show that he’s a loyal coat tailer, he launched it at his mentors New York Fashion Week event (IMG was started by Mark McCormack and IMG produces Fashion Week). It isn’t to be confused with the sequel book, “What They Will Never Teach You at Stanford Business School” that comes out 11-11-19. If you read his scandalously awesome “What a Supermodel Can Teach a Stanford MBA”, “How a Stanford Engineer Works Hard and Smart at SXSW” and “How to Get Man-Charm”, you will like his latest post
