Self Funding a Flight To Silicon Valley

by Larry Chiang on April 19, 2016

By Larry Chiang
Who plans Christmas in April?!
Winners plan.
Winners self fund their company before a VC forces $15mm down our throat by sleeping on our sofa*. Do you want to meet VCs? Step number one in self funding a company is to come to SF. Step 1 in coming to SF is self funding a flight. Step number one to self funding a flight is to prepare to sell Santa costumes via PayPal (WordPress, eventbrite and YouTube)
Get it?? You’re going to take step one that’s the first step for so many awesome things.
I did not co-found  #santaCon, but I sure do sell well

Plot spoiler: By Dec 9, this town will be horny and all sold out of Santa costumes.  #santaCon is December 10

In #SiliconValley, this guy helps you make $600.oo – 3k by selling #santaCon suits in Union Square at a 1200% markup

Invest $4.oo by getting a free WordPress website. In that wordpress, blog your intention to come to SF. And link to this wordpress article about self funding a flight.

Want to make money visiting SF, aka #siliconValley?! Arbitrage #SantaCon costumes at #757Market #cs183a


We only sell the male Santa Claus costume. Women plan better and they do not pay $120 last minute. Men, do.

maybe u missed the @peterthiel #SXSW party. But u can execute Peter’s Lec 9; #CS183 and ‘#CS183s‘a #santaCon Dec10

In December of this year, Christmas falls on the 25th of 2016. SantaCon is December 10. Second SATURDAY. 
Peter Thiel mentored us engineers inside Lec 9; #CS183 to get distribution. Selling costumes and self funding a flight to SF builds your distribution skill set. ‘#CS183s‘ is an offshoot of Lecture 9, CS 183#CS183s is about SALES

Take step uno and wordpress blog your intention to come. WordPress write out 12 sentences that state that you are starting
