UT Engineering Undergrads Host the Official Austin Startup Crawl AfterParty

Larry Chiang investigates and accelerates 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, Jedi in Business Administration. He’s mastered the Vulcan (mentor) mind meld. 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:

I do what Augie Garrido mentors UT baseball players to do: Question authority while following the rules. It is in the ESPN movie, “Inning by Inning.”

The establishment will have you think: AfterParties cost a lot of money and require an open bar and alcohol. Well, me and a bunch of UT undergrads just produced an event for zero money. Johnny Van, Tom Bruhis, Dakota Gordon, Irene Nguyen, and Jin Tang.

The old way was an ultimate success formula – I concocted, developed an ultimate success algorithm that I break down into a tactical, step-by-step recipe… A Gua Gua Guacamole recipe

Official Afterparty for Startup Crawl

It involves
- pattern recognition (this is what you rely on mentors for)
- pattern replication
- pattern iteration

AfterParties are entrepreneurial because hosting them flexes your entrepreneur promotion muscles. It also is a tactical nuke that you can park anywhere that allows you an explosion to generate a Tidal Wave of Momentum. My critics call it a “Perpetual Promotion Machine”

I am going to wrap this Austin entrepreneur blog post by quoting a California transplant into Texas: Augie Garrido. Coach Garrido thinks that baseball practice has a tempo and a rhythm to it. Well, I think that the practice of entrepreneurship should be the same. It is not a perfection, it is a practice.

I broke into an industry by hacking the Fair Isaac credit card credit score algorithm. I crashed film school with another algorithm. I authored 13 algorithms that I dumbed down into “Gua Gua Guacamole”. My algorithms could get sold, but I give them away. It’s cuz I’m rich and hiLarryAss.

About Larry Chiang

Hi, I am Larry. My cell is 512-775-8100... Text me if you need me.

My Stanford Entrepreneur Week bio https://sen.stanford.edu/coaches-call/larry-chiang is dangerous because it builds more shareholder equity than $1mm in VC money. My bio gives you patterns to replicate versus rehashing business history that glories me. Forget about me and focus on my mentor: Mark McCormack. I teach Engineering 145 and installed an Engineering class inside a b-school. I help engineers get street smart.

For money, I started a company sophomore year that sells credit cards to sorority girls. Business is very good. I am *great* at taking the things I learned from my mentor and teaching them to you the undergrad engineer. Engineers should not let engineers graduate without street-smarts.
