The Arbitrage Opportunity Know as “Santa Con”

by Larry Chiang on December 14, 2013

Larry Chiang has a Jedi in Business Admin. He got to keynote at a University he did not get into: Harvard University. They wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School”. Be a Jedi in Business Administration and arbitrage by selling way high and buying way low

So, loyal readers, all y’all know its all about the arbitrage and the algorithm.
At the heart of your entrepreneurship practice, search out, flesh out, conjure up
– the Arbitrage
– the Algorithm
Ok, so lets practice.
Lets, as undergrads, practice being a founder. Remember, it is not a perfection. It’s not an academic exercise.
It is a “practice”

The arbitrage opportunity for undergrad engineers known as “Santa Con” #LABCS3359 #LABCS

Live Action Business Case Study 3359 is SF’s “Santa Con”

It’s old people 22-29 gathering to day drink and pretend like they’re in college circa 2004.
So immature
Plot spoiler, none of these horny single people bought a costume. A santa costume. Just like those Halloween pop-up stores pop-up…. There is no Santa suit pop up Store.
Plot spoiler for LABCS case study 3359, these horny people in 2014 will not have purchased a Santa suit.
Solve this problem by arbitraging Santa suits. Based on my algorithm, you should be able to make a grand with only 20.00 at risk and 12 hours at Stake. I’d use Eventbrite to have customers pre pay their “ticket” for an 11 minute santa con pre party at Westin hotel in the lobby bar
Have the bell hops facilitate your dead drops in case said Santa Con costume Santa suit customer misses the 11 min party
Working a hotel like this is a sub LABCS maneuver called Gua Gua Guacamole “Getting Home Field Advantage on the Road”
Engineering up a 11 Minute Party is “ENGR 145’s Minimum Viable Party” signature maneuver (also documented as a Harvard Business School (HBS 🙂 post. Use Eventbrite
Call to action: text me (1-650-283-8008) “Santa Con arbitrage opp is a “Go”)
Call to action: post this video on your Fb wall
ENGR145’s Anchor Concept: Lemonade and Gua Gua Guacamole
It moves you to the right on the entrepreneur bell curve
