Vacation's over. Small Empires will return this Tuesday, October 15th.

Every week, join Alexis Ohanian as he visits rising New York City startups, offering an inside look at the people behind the companies. This next slate of episodes feature an online dating service, a company that set out to help anyone make beautiful artwork (first on screen and now on paper), an "Uber" for private chefs, and more. Enjoy the teaser below — and if you've missed a few episodes or need a refresher, we've got you covered right here.
