Richard gets unsettling news as the Pied Piper guys prepare to close their Series B funding. Meanwhile, Gilfoyle suggests a risky proposition; Dinesh goes to great lengths to compete with a coworker; Jared keeps an eye on Richard's new assistant; and Gavin tries to charm small-town America.
In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.
Richard is an introverted computer programmer living in the Hacker
Hostel start-up incubator along with his best friend, Big Head, pompous Gilfoyle and dry-witted Dinesh. These social misfits live under the watch of Erlich, a self-satisfied dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free - as long as he gets a ten percent stake in their projects.
After a failed pitch to billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory, Richard seems destined to remain at his job at the tech company Hooli, founded by the megalomaniacal Gavin Belson. When Monica, Gregory's head of operations, and Jared, a Hooli executive, realize the value of the site's compression algorithm, a bidding war erupts between Belson and Gregory, with Richard caught in the middle.
