Roselle Safran of The White House – Code And HipHop – E015
In this episode of Code and Hip Hop, I sit down with Jonathon Francis, Co-founder and former COO of Elite Daily. Jonathon, along with his cofounders, started a little blog back in 2013 and would later turn into a huge media company. I met Johnny back in 2013 when I joined Elite Daily. At the time Elite Daily was just 10 months old and did not have a technical Co-Founder.
