The Get Money – Commercialization Strategy Remix was inspired by a class I took while enrolled in the MSTC (Masters of Science in Technology Commercialization) program offered at The University of Texas at Austin – McCombs School of Business.
The class (Commercialization Strategy) was taught by Dr. Melissa Graebner and Dr. Luis Martins and focused on different steps and strategies for turning technology and innovation into dollars.
What started as as a conversation about rap with Dr. Graebner turned into me taking the syllabus and writing a song about market research, finding your target market, raising seed money, marketing, exit strategies and more.
You gotta find an opportunity by reading they mind
You gotta give em what they want and have ’em standing in line
As a young CEO you gone need cash flow
All the product gotta go our we outta the do(or)/dough
I got my feet in the street and I’m spreading the word
Now everybody wanna meet tryna partner and merge
They scared to compete our technology emerging
Im looking over stats and the facts like a surgeon
Make the most of my at bats, now my profits surging
Generated funds, like we projected
Your network’s your net worth and I’m WELL CONNECTED
Investors respect it, they get a return
Now I’m making money off the value I earn
Let me bring it back, please dont be mad at me, i gotta talk a little more about using strategies, to GET MONEY to GET MONEY
Do the most with what you got as you scheme and you plot
You gotta keep a wide focus but go after the dot
I got a Tarket Market and they ready to spend
I gotta find a way to win so I’m looking at trends
When its time to raise ends, I’m calling family and friends
When done made $100k since the beta began
The enterprise is on the rise we looking better everyday
The money multiplied and I think we on the way
Even though we making bread we gone still look ahead
Wise and well lead or eventually dead
Do you wanna cash out or see the company grow?
Is it selling out to the competition or IPO?
I read the proposition and I don’t know
The price is too low bro, we worth mo(re)
We’ve been grinding for years, blood sweat and tears
Living out our dreams and defeating our fears
Were pioneers in the game
Raised up with innovation while making change
So the thought of a vacation is sounding strange
I want a corporation on the stock exchange
Ching Ching!! Get MONEY!!
