Jake Nickell, founder of Threadless, speaks on finding success in sideprojects.
About the speaker
Jake Nickell is a young, entrepreneurial mad man that programs community websites non-stop. He is the founder of Threadless, along with countless other side projects. Jake dreamed up the Threadless concept in 2000 after winning a t-shirt design contest on a short-lived online design forum. The idea of sharing designs and opening them up for fellow artists’ critiques appealed to him; he thought Threadless would be a way to give back to the community by creating actual goods out of the submitted designs.
