BYOVC = Bring Your Own Venture Capitalist Party

The Wall Street Journal covered the debut of the "Reverse VC Pitch Party" at SXSW in March

This is a party that is #hiLarryAss #reverseVC

The theme for this party = BYOVC

B - bring

Y - your

O -own

V -venture

C -captialist

Everyone has a VC friend that does not want to fund them. In my case I have about 80 of these 'friends

HEY, have you heard of a "White Elephant" gift exchange?! It is where you bring a gift you did not want and you pool all the unwanted gifts together. You get to pick one and you go through rounds where people trade, steal, borror, swap gifts. It is fun!

PLOT spoiler: Everyone goes home with a new gift they do not want.

Think of this party as a white elephant exchange for VCs

Well, for this event, I am requiring you to invite ONE.

Here is how:

1) Email your VC friend and CC me (larry @duck9.com)
2) When I see the email, I'll send you a comp code so you don't have to pay the $59/ $85. And your VC wont have to pay either.

3) That's it.

Or be lazy and just buy a tix.

Remember, in this age of 'Moore's law' and "everything is FASTER"...if you can't get your ROI for your $85 BEFORE you come... you should probably read "How to Work a Conference"

Asse9 stands for Austin Secret Society of Entrepreneurs 9. It means if you're not striving to be entrepreneurial, you're asinine.

No we don't have a website or else it would not be very secret now would it

All we have is a hashtag that we rarely use '#asse9' but what we do have is a huge rolodex.
