What They Do Teach You at USC Film School That Stanford Engineers Need to Leverage

by Larry Chiang on January 10, 2014

By Larry Chiang 
USC film school provided me with knowledge I could not get in engineering. About entrepreneurship. Aka StartUpery.

What They DO Teach You at USC Film About Editing (a startup via the Postmortem)

Editing is all upside. In essence, you are taking footage and making it suck less. 

Resuscitating a dead startup is all upside
I like situations with only upside. 
For example, Plancast. 
For example, Sonar. 
For example, TutorSpree. 
For your ENGR145, summer 2014 with Tom Kosnik, take one of these out of the deadheap -zombie list and Re start the startup (btw, Plancast sold cuz I sold it do the other two). How?! Apply two to five of the hashtags in the below video 
The idea is to cut your teeth, build your skills, instill StartUpery drills, hone your entrepreneurship practices and lever these for later in your career when you can purposefully be and become an accidental entrepreneur. As engineers, we make the market take the risk
We ourselves never risk. 
We as women….
We as engineers at SXSW…
