“You don’t have to know how to code to be an entrepreneur… you just have to know how to hustle.”
Hustle Con is a badass conference where the best non-technical founders (aka hustlers) teach how they got started and give practical advice on growing your startup. If you’ve heard of a hacker, well a hustler is its counterpart. Basically, it’s like a rock n’ roll version of TED, except not as hoity-toity. The catch? None of our speakers know how to code.
Hustle Con is created in partnership with The Hustle, an online publication for forward thinkers interested in business, tech, and design. We find, explore, and uncover original content on stories that inspire.
Hustle Con works like business school: you show up and are taught strategies for starting and growing your company. Except at Hustle Con you’re not paying $50,000 a year to attend. And you’ll actually use what you learn. And your professors have actually accomplished what they’re teaching. And you won’t wanna skip it. When you leave, you’ll be able to implement what you learned. But you might be hungover on Saturday, the day after Hustle Con. That’s your fault though. We’ve gathered the founders of the fastest growing startups to give 30 minute keynotes on actionable tactics for launching and growing your startup. You’ll learn how they got started, how they grew, and what they learned along the way.

The Paramount Theater
The Paramount was originally designed as a movie palace, and was a regular hangout spot for visiting hollywood stars like Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Clark Gable. Later, WWII servicemen would use the theater as an oasis from their wartime responsibilities.
Designed in 1931 by SF-born-and-raised architect Timothy Pflueger, the building was constructed in less than a year.
Pfleuger, whose masterpieces are sprinkled all over the Bay (see: Castro Theater, Bay Bridge, Top of the Mark, and Pacific Stock Exchange, to name a few), was mad about Art Deco.
And when you walk through the big brass doors to see gold-ornamented walls, curvy staircases, and plush seats… you’ll be mad about it, too.
As always, the content presented at Hustle Con will speak for itself. But this year we’re excited to add a little glamour to the day. That’s what Timothy Pflueger would have wanted.
