The Wall Street Journal covered the debut of the "Reverse VC Pitch Party" at SXSW in March
This is a party where tier one VCs pitch us.
It is #hiLarryAss #reverseVC
Focus: "Wooing a VC To Mentor Us"
I have this theory that people do better when a mentor paves a way... I have coat-tailed the best and the brightest so I make the perfect executive admin to organize this event
Lets all learn to use a super angel to mentor us
During my legendary VC panel at SXSW where I crashed people on to my panel... one big *NUGGET* of knowledge was, "Ask for mentorshipship before you ask for money"
VCs pitch us the entrepreneur.
*If you'd like a rebate, Facebook wall post, tweet & email me, Larry Chiang, the event secretary*
Remember, in this age of 'Moore's law' and "everything is FASTER"...
...if you can not get your ROI for your $ BEFORE you come... you should probably read my articles on "How to Work a Conference". If you don't get your money's worth before the party starts, you should not be coming and maybe you should re-think being an entrepreneur.
See the list of VCs I like HERE - The all-star VC line-up includes:
* Larry Chiang is also the founder, funder, managing director, and only member of his fanclub on facebook :-)**
*How to redundantly RSVP*:
Text message, 650-283-8008, to RSVP. Include your full name, title AND org, email address, FOR example, text message, "Sheila Wisnowski / CEO-founder / Sheila@ProsperAss.com/ #reverseVC".
Medium Capacity*. This will sell out
*PRESS*: Tweet at me for a comp code. I am @larrychiang

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"
PLOT spoiler: Everyone goes home with a new gift they do not want.
Think of the BYOVC theme as a white elephant exchange for VCs.
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.
"Entrepreneurs build products and projects for entrepreneurs."
