The Hustle has a community of builders who are hellbent on changing the world through business. We support their goals by providing business information, whether it’s the news, research, or insights.

We have numerous products that our community depends on everyday in business. Some of these include our Daily email with more than 1m subscribers, Trends, our research and insights publication, and Hustle Con, our flagship event.

About the company

The Hustle provides business information using our straightforward, no BS voice. We take complicated issues and explain them in a way that is smart, actionable, and if we do it right we may even make you laugh.

The first way we did this was by sending our Daily business email each morning. It’s our job every day to tell them what news is important and why it matters to them. And, at just over 3 years old, we’re one of the fastest growing news outlets in the country with more than 1M active subscribers.

The next phase of our company was supporting our community with research and insights. Trends provides builders the analysis of what products they should be building and the insights on how to do it. We’ve built proprietary tools to help us discover the next great opportunity and built a team of analysts to break it down in a way that you understand and can take action.

It’s our belief that the future Bloombergs, Gartners, and other business information brands of the world (something we want to become) will need a mass community that loves them and products that solve niche problems. We’re on our way to making this a reality.

About the role

Events are the soul of The Hustle. In total we’ve had nearly 25,000 attendees at our events in the last 5 years. Through our flagship event, Hustle Con, we’ve amassed one of the largest groups of non-technical Founders in the world. This community comes to our events to learn from the best and brightest, meet like-minded builders, and walk away inspired they can change the world through business.

Going forward we will continue to expand our event business. It will serve as a way to profitably market our other products and bring our community to life.
