Thrillist was started by two guys – recent college grads – who felt there wasn’t a resource for cool gadgets, restaurants, and other lifestyle topics that resonated with them.
Thrillist also offers social media, video, and apps, all with the goal of giving its male audience what it wants. And what is that? “All the things you assume guys would like, but hope they won’t,” Lerer says.
Part 2: Tomorrow we talk with Ben Lerer about JackThreads, Thrillist’s events, and what they mean to the brand.
Part 3: On Wednesday, Ben Lerer describes what it’s like to lead a start up and talks about the company he launched with his dad, Lerer Ventures.
