It’s Asse9 to Not Self Fund

by Larry Chiang on May 15, 2015

Larry Chiang’s 5th book, “What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School“, is a sequel to his mentor’s, Mark McCormack’s book, What They Don’t Teach You At Harvard Business School. What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School quotes Mark McCormack’s book in every chapter and even launched at Mark McCormack’s, IMG’s, “New York Fashion Week”. What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School went from runway release on 09-09-09 right on to the NY Times bestseller list in under an hour! Initially, Chiang used his mentor’s book, What They Don’t Teach You At Harvard Business School, to start a company as an engineering major. Duck9, at Illini Tower, helps students get a FICO credit card credit score over 750. Prior to the NY Fashion week book launch party, Chiang did an H.L.S. keynote causing Harvard Business School to write: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“. Confused?? Well, his latest post in Harbus was done #shirtless as a yogi, “Setting an intention to win SXSW, THIS 2016 SXSW“.

“Fashion Week (Sept 10-20) is like #LeadGen in Las Vegas. Cuz they’re cool places to launch new deals.”

Self funding is smart. 
Asse9 is the acra-tondre (an acronym double entendre). It’s asinine. It’s dumb if you’re not creatively self funding. 
Let’s look at the partial self-funding effort of the movie Entourage

En route to self funding your startup, help others get DISTRIBUTION while you’re distributing
