(Executive Producer/Co-creator) Your average day is probably full of interactions with Google, Facebook, and Twitter. But it wasn't so long ago that those companies were unknown startups, hoping to find an audience and struggling to survive against the established titans of tech. Shot exclusively for The Verge and presented by AT&T, Small Empires is a series of stories about young entrepreneurs who are building their own businesses outside of the Silicon Valley. Season 2 will take viewers across North America; from Atlanta to Miami, across the border to the Canadian province of Ontario and beyond.
Alexis Ohanian — who helped launch Reddit, Hipmunk and is now a partner at Y Combinator — is back as the host of Small Empires, sitting down with these founders to discuss their trials and triumphs.
