Please Update Norm, the Late Stage VC at IVP

by Larry Chiang on December 12, 2013

By Larry Chiang
I’ve never met a late stage VC that didn’t wanna at least sniff at the early stuff
That way come series C or D, Norm can emasculate the series B, series A or/and seed VC by saying: YEAH I MET THAT TEAM THREE YEARS AGO. AT A PARTY

Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
Please update Norm at IVP

OK, look kids. I think you should update people like you’re a FedEx package. Instead of destination Memphis, getting re-routed post-hubbed to Oak Brook, your destination is Series D. 

If you’re doing a Series D, you’re mine as well start updating Norm. No coffee required. That’d be awkward. 
Impress me by self funding your self and yourselves. I’d intro you to my mentor, but he passed away in 2003. All that is left of his residual life energy is love, love, his book WTDTYAHBS, his company, his fashion show, his management of celebs, his management of athletes, his IMG fashion show, his other two NY Times Bestselling books and 300+ articles I’ve written that quoted or mentioned him
Err, 1,300
Darn it. I left off the one.
One Thousand Three Hundred articles tweets hashtags videos CNN segments, CBS segments, abc segments CNN ireport, 
I said CNN twice because I’m loyal. They discovered me back when I was a baby entrepreneur and gave me a 15 min spotlight 15 minutes in-a-row
I cannot confirm or deny whether Mr Mark McCormack installed me as the IT guy in 1999. I just do know that you should download the not-yet-loaded-up-on-STACKOVERFLOW-computer program called, “Business Recipes Mark McCormack taught LARRY CHIANG from a 1983 book, WTDTYAHBS 
Download it to your brain via reading
Me and norm will be celebrating your series D round with a round of water in Las Vegas. At a tech show you’re speaking at. Featuring you. With you on the techcrunch home page

Text me to get started bitchezz
I think you can text me his last name cuz I just am too lazy to google how to spell it and too embarrassed to text him
