Strategies for UT Entrepreneurship Class, “One Semester Startup” BEFORE It Even Starts

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

TACTIC STRATEGY #3
Googled “GaGaGuaranteed Exits summer 2013″. You’re effen welcome

TACTIC STRATEGY #4
Say hi to Jason. And just tell the legendary Bob Metcalfe, the legendary Josh Baer that you’re wanting a JBA and that youve read “Y” number of posts from Larry Chiang

Please have “Y” be greater than 11

TACTIC STRATEGY #5
Don’t get a big head and don’t think about sharing equity or cash w/me. I’m plenty rich enough.

TACTIC STRATEGY #6

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.
