Mixing Art and Business

December 23, 2014

The Story

It’s been three months since StartUp launched, and there have been a lot of changes. Gimlet Media has 8 employees, a growing audience, 3 shows in production, and more on the way. In Episode 10, Alex and Matt do something they haven’t had a chance to do yet, dive into the numbers. They review Gimlet’s monthly costs and revenues, and they’re surprised by what they find.

Nazanin and Alex talk about how they’ve personally gone into debt. And a Florida pizza baron shares lessons on running a company and being an artist.
