“INSIGHT: Ga Ga Guaranteed Exits at Stanford Engineering 145″
It’s a phrase that describes writing that is not written at the fifth-grade level. Well, as this is my second post, I’ll delve into translating the incorrigible Larry Chiang.
Err attempt to translate.
“Ga Ga Guaranteed Exits” is something that I am paying close attention to. In typical Chiang parlance, he jokingly reveals something strikingly insightful: Entrepreneurship’s risk need not be filled with potential failure.
The first thing I pattern recognized is that it’s an Easter egg hunt. There are approximately a dozen ideas for Ga Ga Guaranteed exits. And they’re littered all over Chiang’s social media (mainly Twitter).
By Chiang’s own admission, he is out at Stanford engineering, but finagled his way on to the GSB campus. The class is also called ENGR 145, but unofficially it’s a Wharton class hosted at the Stanford Business School.
Are you even allowed to do that?!?!
If you can make any sense out of this YouTube video, you’re a smarter entrepreneur than me.
At the heart of this post, I will state something I’m sure I’ll be haunted by: Larry Chiang is at the forefront of entrepreneur education for undergrad engineers. He is an absolute visionary and already is legendary.
