Fireside Chats, Episode 36: Chatting With Patreon CEO Jack Conte

Colin's Last Stand: Fireside Chats

Patreon co-founder and CEO Jack Conte changed my life. Twice, in fact. When I first met him in 2014, his new company was a largely-unknown upstart, but today, Patreon is a world-renowned name with $100 million in venture capital and a singular mission: Fund the Creative Class. I sat down with Jack for an hour-long interview to pick his brain about the past, present, and future of the service. What mistakes have been made? What new features are coming in the future? How many more lives can the service touch like it touched mine? His answers are across-the-board exciting.
