Cropping Out A Founder

by Larry Chiang on April 25, 2015

Larry Chiang’s book, “What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School“, has an entire chapter devoted to “Entrepreneurship” #Ch9. Getting undergrad founders to self fund is easier after all college students get a “FICO” credit score over 740. After a Harvard Law School keynote, Harvard Business wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School

Obvi that’s my killer smile and supermodel comped tuxedo ON THE LEFT. Like Russell Wilson, I bring my own tux everywhere.

Very counterintuitive: Rich dudes will help you and crop themselves out.

“Non-Employee Co-Founder” what does that mean exactly? [No Pay / Idea Guy]

(It knowledge activates the #CS183X concept ‘non employee co-founder’)

To augment the counterintuitive truth: ‘non employee co-founder’, I came up with a visual.

I gave my non employee co-founder of #Duck9 a load of @spg miles to say Thank you. He picked up the phone to thank me. #Clues #SXSW

I have this conspiracy theory that Travis and Garrett are secret Founders Fund VCs. I mean they non employee co-founded Uber. Ryan Graves got co-founder pay in an inverted non-employee, cofounder. So, Ryan as Ubers first ceo was employee, non-co-founder (SOURCE my brain, Twttr and this Business Insider article:
Counterintuitive truth: a VCs less likely to screw us if they gave us the idea. And then the VCs that gave us the idea help us. In short, they’re making the stock more expensive to buy.
I dunno if Mike Maples was the non employee co founder of twitter, but he’s in on Twttr.VCs that invest in us later used to have the tendency to wanna fire us.

Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
Majority of us white founders would get fired by VCs. Until I did something about it

As the curator of all-things #vcSecrets, I haven’t heard of founders who get screwed by VCs who are their non employee co-founder.
