New York-based Thrillist is the rare startup where employees can work on the cutting edge of their industry — in this case, digital media and e-commerce — and enjoy free Jagermeister on tap.
Ben Lerer and Adam Rich founded Thrillist in 2005 and now the email-newsletter-for-dudes is up to almost 100 employees.
And it now serves almost 3 million subscribers in 20 year-round editions — including Minneapolis, launching in May. Combining content and commerce, the company could generate more than $40 million in revenue this year.
But what stands out about Thrillist’s office is the vibe that people might actually be having fun while they’re at work. Even early (~10 a.m.) on a Thursday morning, when we visited.
