about this episode

Peter Pham and Mike Jones know a thing or two about building startups and helping them grow. Their project Science Inc. is a little bit incubator, a little bit growth hacking, with some acquisition power, too. “We call it a studio,” Peter told Jason when the cofounders sat down for an interview at the Code Conference. Science has backed DogVacay and Dollar Shave Club, and acquired Delicious this year, the once ubiquitous social bookmarking site. Peter and Mike explain their model, and emphasize that no, they are not a fund. Plus, we dig deep on the career troughs that immediately preceded this venture: Peter with Color.com and Mike’s time as the last CEO of MySpace.
