On Sunday night is a special 1 Semester Startup Speed Dating event at UT. Guest Blogger Larry Chiang has some advice on how to succeed at the event.
I give special homework that makes people rich. Im hiLarryAss like that. This event/party/mixer is on my radar for December 2
By “speed dating” it means UT undergrads as pre-entrepreneurs. You’re supposed to walk in with a list of skills. And then “hook up” with other similarly newbie pre-preneurs.
This is how I, Larry Chiang would do it.
DISCLOSURE: I screwed up my baseball career with a legendary coach, Augie Garrido. I learned my lesson and kick plenty of butt now.
TACTIC STRATEGY #1
I’d master “1 semester Startup’s” version at Stanford. It’s called ‘engineering 145′. By master I mean spend 3 hrs cramming and preparing and googling and reading. I would start with this video that took me three years to boil down (mechanical engineering pun intended).
ENGR145′s Anchor Concept: Lemonade and Gua Gua Guacamole
It moves you to the right on the entrepreneur bell curve
TACTIC STRATEGY #2
Then I’d text me 2-10 sentences what you learned. If they don’t suck duck butt, “congrats!-I’m-your-mentor”.
Seriously, while others are shopping for co-founders, you’re walking with my 512-775-8100 cell phone pre-programmed. Walk in on Dec 2 and know
1) you’re uber well prepared!
1b) You’re prolly on the right side of the bell curve. Your BIG 12 Entrepreneur Championship is yours to lose
