Naming a Movie is Just Ass Problematic as Naming a Startup

by Larry Chiang on August 12, 2015

Larry Chiang landed on the New York Times Best Selling list by pre-rolling and pre-promoting months-and-months before the “09-09-09” launch of What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School. Hollywood optioned WTDTYASBS’s scene treatments because as CEO of Duck9, he hosted film festival parties at Sundance and SXSW. He’s testified before Congress and during TV interviews he tracks his own “mentor mentions per press interview” (#MMPPI) His mentors are Gerri Detweiler and Mark McCormack. Yes Gerri Detweiler of “Ultimate Credit Handbook” fame and Mark McCormack of, “What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School” fame. Gain an entrepreneurship advantage by staying in the Westin Hotel across from the convention center.

New York Fashion Week is Sept 10-17, 2015. I will be there with Nike dry-fit, on

This is Disney we are talking about. It is a multimillion dollar company ;-). Now, let us address your startup.

En masse, YC apps led to…

Let us go down three different rabbit holes. Flippantly the opposite of a shallow dive. The deep dive #1:

Just use a hashtag. 
SharkTank applicants face the same issue. No dot com. So. So, I used #ENGR145. 
Rabbit hole #2:
Use your name. Andressen Horowitz. Is a16z. As a startup, I love the concept of using your name because it gives seasoned executives, “One throat to choke”. Meaning, I can find you. 
Rabbit hole #3, is awesome. You’re going to have to email me… 
…or stalk ambush me at 98 San Jacinto.
