The Story 

Season 4 of StartUp continues with the story of an entrepreneur who built a widely recognized business, lost it all, and is now starting over—from scratch. That entrepreneur is former American Apparel CEO Dov Charney. Over the next several episodes, we’ll hear as he makes his second attempt at success, and creates an entirely new company in the shadow of his controversial past.   

The Facts David Herman mixed the episode. Our theme song was written and performed by 

Mark Phillips. Our updated theme was remixed by Bobby Lord. The special ad music, Microliters, was written and performed by Build Buildings. Our logo was designed by Elias Stein. Additional music from the band
