Hashtag Based, Min Viable App

by Larry Chiang on November 2, 2013

By Larry Chiang
The power of the hashtag has yet to be leveraged 
Since, I’m enthralled at the first few steps of founding a startup, let me focus the hashtag on helping us do that. Lets use a hashtag to layer in execution of my mentor’s recipes.
Mark McCormack would ace SXSW.

What is a hashtag based, min viable app?! It fully functions using twttr + EM. For example #LarryChiangSonar and

Download nothing.

The “app”, #LarryChiangSonar, is going to help you 
– network at sxsw
– pay for SXSW
– get you your ROI for sxsw 
– execute sets of signature business recipes
– transition seeing street smarts to doing street smarts
– risk mitigate, risk minimize & risk eliminate
– pattern replicate startups who’ve “won” SXSW
Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
Like GitHub, #LarryChiangSonar breaks down success at #SXSW into 5, 30-35 step signature recipes. Easy to do. Easier not to do

GitHub is your model for understanding. In the same way a CS major ceo copy pastes GitHub code… You as three tech co-founders will be executing basic, basic promotions.

Basic, basic growth via fundamental marketing tasks
These then engineer up our momentum
Sound good?
