The Passion Economy: Redefining Work

Sam Yam, Li Jin, and Lauren Murrow

Posted April 17, 2020

This episode of the a16z Podcast covers the the rise of online platforms that enable people to make a living off their unique interests and skills. It’s a trend that’s become increasingly relevant as the demand for virtual work grows.

The discussion — with Patreon cofounder and CTO Sam Yam and a16z consumer tech partner Li Jin in conversation with Lauren Murrow — covers the new forms of work made possible by these online platforms, why creators today are effectively making more money off fewer fans, and what all of this means for the future of entrepreneurship.
