Hack YC via 9 Explosive ENTREPRENEURSHIP Revelations

by Larry Chiang on December 8, 2014

By Larry Chiang
Third Institution of Silicon Valley = #LarryChiang
I’m honored!

Since I’m deathly afraid of imposter syndrome here is an explosion of revelations. Remember, I am qualified to dole these out because I derived the modern day “Rule of 72” called the Law of 11:11. The 11:11 theorem showed that three CS majors with a FICO over 750 and revenue over $900k can get more funding than an unfunded YC portfolio company.

Explosive revelation #1:

“What they DO teach you at YC, (but don’t put in order!)” YC = y- Combinator.

If you’ve read 1/10 as much about YC, then you see tits out of order

It’s like a romantic date where she wants me to go to second base first. Or worse! She makes me let her go to THIRD BASE FIRST.
Here in the United States of America, we run the baseball bases country clockwise
Explosive revelation #2:
Paul buchheit.

YC advice not stressed at #CS183b
addressing “do things that do not scale”(but’ve momentum) #dttdsBHM via #ENGR145

Explosive revelation #THREE:

It says, “Make something people want”. What the YC app doesn’t say is “have all y’all engineered up a business model (#EUBM) and does your CS major ceo have a practice of #CTCFTR’ing?!

Explosive revelation #4:
This is strait for the Wall Street Journal (it’s a publication about business here in America where I live)

Startups Need to Focus on Sales, Not Marketing #dttdsBHM

Non Explosive revelation

Omg, Paul Buchheit’s “Friend Feed” was featured in my LP stand up comedy routine #OFGPFSE. Re good vintages are luck #BackDoorUnicorns

Me just showing off now:

B4 Posthaven was “Posterous”. A sequel to Posterous = sweet spot #LarryChiangSky

Explosive revelation #7

Do a sequel or a spin out when you apply to YC. It’s where you sell them stock, the YC partners stock. 
It’s like the NLP PUA stuff you’ve read.
Explosive revelation #8
Cut verbal deals 50% as good as this 9 year old who right now codes better than your co-founder (who you should fire and recap BTW)
Explosive revelation #8: Selfie, no selfIt is where I take a selfie. But I am not in it. Its like a YC startup where you have a ‘non employee co-founder’

Explosive revelation #9: You don’t even need to apply to YC via an “application”.

Yup, you don’t need to apply. You just need to be meeting me at Coupa cafe. When Paul Graham sees that you are meeting me. He will just hijack my meeting with you. Then he will just invite you into YC.

How do you get a meeting with me at Coupa Cafe when I have a policy to ‘not do coffee’!? You read a dozen PG blog posts and then summarize your knowledge on Twitter. I wanna read your 140 char summaries of PG’s essays. Then, I will meet up
