What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School, They Now Do Teach in the Engineering School

by Larry Chiang on May 19, 2011

Larry Chiang investigates and experiences entrepreneurship and pre-entrepreneurship. He covers the front-lines via Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s channel “What They Don’t Teach You at Business School”. He has a JBA not an MBA. Its a Jedi in Business Administration. After Chiang’s Harvard Law keynote, Harvard Business wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“ (the same title as his NY Times bestseller). If you read his scandalously awesome “How to Hack at AfterParty“, “What a Supermodel Can Teach a Stanford MBA” and “How to Get Man-Charm”, you will like his latest post:

What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School, They Now Do Teach in the Engineering School

By Larry Chiang

I constantly hear the complaints of whiney VCs and founders too: “I can’t find any engineers or developers”Well, I get tired of hearing this so I am solving this. With a partyProfessor Tom Kosnik, Professor Chuck Eesley and I have this theory that people do better when a mentor paves a way…

Yay, lets do a party and get this process going.

Lets get CS majors and VCs in a room

VCs are always hunting for CS talent.

B-school founders are just two developer founders short of rounding out their team.

Founders also bitch about not having enough engineering talent.

Well, me and Professor Kosnik solve problems and that is where E145 comes in.
We are taking an already legendary class and taking it to the next, next level during summer session.

Last year, I crashed 30 Stanford kids into major major tech conferences. Lets all execute my obnoxious article on GigaOm and over-the-top post in TechCrunch. It is required reading for engineers that expect to graduate street-smart**.

Step ONE is about “How to Charm a VC to Mentor Us

Remember, in this age of ‘Moore’s law’ and “everything is FASTER”…

…if you can not get your ROI for your $96 BEFORE you come… you should probably read my articles on “How to Work a Conference”. If you don’t get your money’s worth before the party starts, you should not be coming and maybe you should re-think being an entrepreneur.

and its free so ka-pow. There is your ROI

*** BONUS ***
a party invite for you…

If you email him, be sure to include your cell number in the subject line. If you want him to email you his new articles…, ask him in an email :-)
