Emailing strangers. ‬⁩

Emailing people, cold calling people that hang up on you. Mailing people just to be different. Let’s focus on email 


Larry Chiang @duck9 (@LarryChiang)
Ex-athlete and 🌲alum, Lisa ⁦‪@LisaFalzone‬⁩, would cold email #cs183email

For example, after reading ⁦‪@bhorowitz‬⁩ book, she cold emailed the sales guy Ben ⁦‪@a16z‬⁩ mentioned.

Cold email is where you’re emailing people out of the blue
VCs and 🐳 like to be sold.

Sean Jacobsen cold emails speakers at conferences to see they want to join a group dinner during the tech or investor conference
Brennan McEachran 👨‍🚀 (@i_am_brennan)
And follow up, like 9 times if youre serious. Spam is crazy these days and inboxes are horrible to parse


Jason ✨😊✨ Lemkin 🦄 (@jasonlk)
If you want a job somewhere in tech

Just reach out to whomever you want to work for with a great email

Everyone is hiring today. Everyone.

⁦‪@Shobeir‬⁩ ⁦‪@ryangraves‬⁩ ⁦‪@Uber‬⁩ When Ryan was in Chicago, he used asymmetric networking protocol #cs183Email#ch4 = networking


Larry Chiang @duck9 (@LarryChiang)
asymmetric. It’s when two VIPs don’t wanna talk to you. And one of them is doing the half assed intro.

Emailing strangers by guessing what their email address is. Killer great tip ⁦‪@LisaFalzone‬⁩
