Small Empires door The Verge

The Verge and Alexis Ohanian have teamed up to bring you a brand new video series on the frenetic and exciting world of New York City startups. It’s called Small Empires and will feature Ohanian (an all-around charming chap known for Reddit, Breadpig, and Hipmunk) giving us an inside look at a wide range of startups — big, small, and virtually unknown. As Alexis sees it, the show will be something akin to “Inside the Actor’s Studio meets Dirty Jobs for tech in New York.” And obviously, we liked the sound of that.
