Ben Clymer on Building Media & Commerce at Hodinkee


Jacob Cohen Donnelly: Can you talk about where the idea for Hodinkee came from? The genesis of that name and how you got started?

Benjamin Clymer: Sure. The genesis of Hodinkee is really completely organic. There was no idea for it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life to be totally frank. I grew up in upstate New York, I went to school for Business and Information Studies. I knew that I wanted to be in business of some kind, I didn’t think media was the answer, to be totally honest with you. I started my career after undergrad in New York in management consulting, and then finance at work at UBS. That was during the first financial crisis of my lifetime in 2008.
