Update Your Startup’s Potential VC Like a Fed Ex Package

by Larry Chiang on March 15, 2013

By Larry Chiang

When you’re a VC, you dole out genius recommendations. Sometimes, it feels like you’re talking into a super deep well.

You talk and don’t know if it really gets heard.

Well, I say update like a fed ex package to undergrads. The idea is that old people need lots of updates and lots of news. It’s how they are. Remember, they need to know the 17 steps it takes for their Amazon delivery to arrive.

Are you and your journey to a destination more complex than an Amazon shipment?!


So you as a cs major from Cal should update at least 17x en route to your VC’s recommended goal. Think of it as value added badgering.

Good luck updating like a fed ex package And cc me and my secret email Chiang9 @duck9 Dot com
