Mike Rothman, Co-Founder of Fatherly

Mike Rothman built his career at communications and media companies including Digitas, Hachette and Thrillist. After spending 7 years at Thrillist growing the company from $0 to $100m, Mike yearned to go back to the days of wearing many hats while growing a nascent business. Several months after leaving Thrillist, Mike and his co-founder began incubating Fatherly, a parenting resource geared towards men who want to be great fathers without turning into cliches. Fatherly bootstrapped for a year and a half and has raised $2m to date while becoming the go-to resource for new fathers and even some mothers! Download this week’s podcast episode to hear more about Fatherly and how Mike became the godfather to the child of one of his first cold call recipients.
