Waze Winning A Tech Conference Did Not Take $$$ To Win

by Larry Chiang on November 20, 2015

Larry Chiang mentors Computer Science majors who start startups to duck Chapter 9 bankruptcy. #CSmajorCRO protocols help. #CSmajorCRO ‘signature business recipes’ get you ROI while everyone else is paying tech conference fees and HOPING. For example, Waze winning SXSW. For example, months-and-months before What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School launched at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, the investment risk was vetted and using #CSmajorCRO skills the ROI was engineered. How?! Read what Chiang read: “What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School“. Stanford Engineering liked a 3 minute keynote enough to bring Chiang in to teach, #ENGR145.

New York Fashion Week will be Sept 9-19, 2016.

The rumors are true.

Waze did not take money to Win. See Anthony Ha’s article in TechCrunch. 2011.

If you want details about how Waze won, I did a Facebook photo album. Facebook search does not work as of Dec 5, 2016 so you might have to manually scroll 4,200 pictures.

In short, Waze won SXSW by spending less than $1500.oo. That includes flight and hotel 🙂
Avoid startup bankruptcy by not “spending a lot on your muffler”.
Avoid startup bankruptcy by slapping people who mutter and regurgitate: “It takes money to make money”

It does not take money to make money. There is plenty of money where you are trying to go. It takes #CSmajorCRO ‘signature business protocols’.

Waze was at 240 Hamilton. I did lead gen there first Friday of every month. 
Waze crossed the innovation chasm
Waze crossed the innovation chasm from the right:

Waze used something everyone needs: a Cellphone holder that suction cups to your car. A basic #CSmajorCRO subroutine is ‘pay for play, your way’

Avoid business death, kids.
Duck, #Ch9, startup bankruptcy.
