THE Entrepreneur Experience at SXSW
Hi, it is me, Larry Chiang. How are you! This li'l list will sell out, is engineered to not scale and has sold out in
When I say, "Not scale", I mean hand curated for each buyer. It is a super secret party list for sxsw that I do by hand, manually. Literally
This sells out because it solves a problem.
SXSW is incredibly crowded and expensive. Whether you're a first timer or a veteran, you question whether or not spending money at SXSW is worth it. This list gets you your return on investment (ROI) on the list and will get you your ROI for the $895 Interactive badge and the ROI on one year of MBA tuition. If not, satisfied, you will get a full refund. I love ROI and ostentatiously set the goal of having a one-hour keynote at MIT, Stanford, and UT be the ROI for an entire year of tuiton.
The problem: You are planning SXSW. Most have no idea what to do or where to go next. SxSW sucks for a lot of people - -especially recently. You KNOW that you could acing South by, but HOW?!
The problem: All SXSW's are pure mayhem. The haze of fubar has up-ended, disoriented and knocked off balance even the most battle hardened work conference attendee. F.U.B.A.R. is an acronym from war. It stands for F*ck'd Up Beyond All Recognition.
The solution: Get in the know right now about the best entrepreneur events.
My problem: Finding non-tourist-ie entrepreneurs. I will only work with founders. If you're never going to launch, lets work together 2000-never.
You came to SXSW in the hopes of helping your business. You are asinine if you don't get a 10x ROI on your SXSW investment. I will help you get 3x of that ROI in ten text messages, 4-10 emails and one party list via a password locked file.
Asse9, Austin Secret Society of Entrepreneurs, thinks it's asinine if you spend money without getting it all back BEFORE YOU SET FOOT at SXSW. See my super popular video "30 Second MBA at Fast Company. You're also dumb if you don't get access to awesome mentors via networking events. I talk about both mentors and networking in chapters five and four (respectively) of my book, "What They Don't Teach You At Stanford Business School".
Last year, SXSW was a tidal wave of activities that had an entrepreneurial bent to them but many entrepreneurs were left out in the cold. First timers have it the hardest. My goal is to be your ROI within 2 hours of handing over your hard earned cash.
For example, if you spend money at 2pm, I want you to be able to say at 4pm, "OMG, I felt like I just took a genius class called ENGR145 at Stanford".
"SXSW has the best and worst bangs for the buck"

This SXSW Party list is just for entrepreneurs. It is a party summary loaded with information on South by Southwest events that get delivered to you via a password locked file, text message and email.
If ROI is NOT your focus, leave now.
If you don't trust this money-back-offer, leave NOW.
Ok, this 189.99 cost of the list is worth it because of this extra: My personal ATC (air traffic control) services. You get ATC'd into the best parties via my party command HQ.
For a few of you that have an existing, VC funded company, or and PRE VC funded entity, read on...

P.S. MBAs are welcome. I will single handedly get you ROI for one year's tuition at Harvard. If you go to Stanford GSB, I am so sorry that finals are during that week. I think its weird that all y'all even have to take tests there at 655 Knight.

P.P.S. MBAs only... here is a video for you

P.P.P.S. special offer: Get the 189 package for free right now via 'instant rebate' if you blog your goals via a WordPress blog.
- You should have your wordpress blog on a site that is the same as your startup (this vets, filters and weeds out the entrepreneurs who DO versus the non-entrepreneurs)
- Link your wordpress blog post to this eventbrite page (http://bit.ly/vc0306list)
- Tweet at me the link of your wordpress article (sorry no tumblr or posterous)
- Follow the formula of my MVBP (minimum viable blog post) is optional. You should google it if you want to pattern replicate. Its 12 sentences, two pictures, one focus.
- Limited to the first 25 people who blog this via WordPress! This will disappear once the 25 limit is reached (NOTE: delete this at "25")
The catch is that you're doing something good for you that gets you to understand taking action is critical
Question: I don't know what to blog. How should I start.
Answer: As an entrepreneur, the blog post is the new press release. Start with simple truths that are basic facts.
Title: Panda12.com is attending 2013 SXSW
by Larry Chiang
We are going to entrepreneur events at this year's sxsw. I saw the entrepreneur party list by Larry Chiang and it looks like something cool. We have been to SXSW before.
Our goal is to get the money back that me and my co-founder are spending. We used to work at big companies. We studied engineering at CMU. It stands for Carnegie Mellon University. The sxsw startup village looks cool. Accelerator looks cool.
We want to meet VCs and set the audacious goal of getting our investment in SXSW back before we land in Austin Texas. Wish us luck
Question: Do I HAVE to BLOG?!
Larry Chiang answer: Yes, you have to request to get all this free via a wordpress blog, blog post.
Question: How many people do you have out of the 25 limit?!
Answer: When I host a guest at Stanford, sometimes I offer $75 per person who blogs their notes. Out of a room of 80, maybe five will. If you're a public speaker, know that most people just casually exist and do not prepare. Most people do not follow up. I am outlandish enough to think that you can get your money back before you attend a conference.
Question: I don't really like to read. Do I have to read your stuff?!
Answer: Remember, as an entrepreneur, you are paid to work hard and work smart. I document to patterns that I recognize that I see time-and-time again. If you do not read and re-read them, you won't leverage knowing what I know. Which is a lot.
