Layers and Layers of Details About Self Funding

by Larry Chiang on August 29, 2015

Larry Chiang pre-promotes live events and pre-promotes FICO scores wayyyyyy before you need a loan. An example is his 09-09-09 book release at New York Fashion Week. What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School made a huge splash on the NY Times bestseller list because it was pre-promoted. #WTDTYASBS’s distributed at Sundance and SXSW months and months before. As CEO of Duck9, Chaing prepares mentees with high FICO scores months and months before applying for a getting lines of credit. To know what he knows, read what Chaing read: “Ultimate Credit Handbook” and, “What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School“. The return of invested capital before-the-launch, applies to this article under the category, “Deep Underground Capital Knowledge”.

New York Fashion Week is less than 30 days away!!

Venture, as a form of capital only represents 10 basis points of the overall M1 money supply. VC dominates startup education. VC clouds your mind from the 99.90% of other available capital.
VC validates like a good grad school, sure. But I had to skip GSB. And there are 13 publicly available VC PDF’s at “YC”.
The fact that I DJ’d 52 publicly available PDF files should signify I am a Silicon Valley insider with great and specific knowledge. Let us explore layers and layers of money that are everywhere around you. Swirling.

Proprietorship is a vehicle & legal structure Silicon Valley eschews, ignores and even scoffs at #SelfFundSellFun

It’s when you file a “schedule C”. This PDF is tied to your social security number. You list out money in and money out. Meanwhile, everyone else in #ENGR145 is doing an internal meeting about the capital table, while their “total shareholder equity” is reading ‘ZERO’.

Returning capital is critical when/if you self fund.

First you take in $$, then later you pay back money you lent yourself.

It’s an address.
#530Lytton‘s a subroutine.
A subroutine is a 60 step recipe I cared enough to write out. 9:30am-?

#530Lytton‘s a subroutine to get you $15,000,000image1.JPG

If you’re selling stock under duress, you’re not fully understanding my mentors #ch2. Treasure management. No. Yard. Sales.

A lot of founders buy back their stock at a huge discount.

I judge you on whether you can fire a board member, that is a VC. Bonus if you let them save face!


Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
I judge you on whether you negotiated a clawback clause (so you can buy back stock in your own company) #VCsecrets.



Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
I judge you on how fast you return ‘invested capital’. #vcSecrets.

Coincidence #1 @JoshuaBaer. We both had mentors who were rich and semi-retired. #cs178
