nastygal illo final

The first month of  2013 PandoMonthly events is officially over. PandoDaily’s Sarah Lacy interviewed Airbnb’s Brian Chesky in San Francisco at the beginning of the month, Etsy’s Chad Dickerson last week in New York, and NastyGal’s Sophia Amoruso last night in Los Angeles.

Amoruso is unique in our series for a few reasons: She’s the first female entrepreneur we’ve interviewed; she’s the only fashion-focused entrepreneur of the bunch; and she’s the only one who openly admits the joys of playing God as a startup founder. Oh, and she’s probably the only one who’s been asked what she would do if a ghost told her how successful she’d be and likely the only one with strong feelings about celebrity endorsements.

Last night’s event was sponsored by Eventbrite and ZEFR, which provided space for the interview and all of the free pizza and beer. If you’re interested in sponsoring an event in the future, please email Jeanne Logozzo at Jeanne(at)PandoDaily(dot)com. The full video is available for streaming below.
