What's this show all about?

Startup acquisitions and IPOs have always been reported with great fanfare, but few sources examined the deeper reasons behind their success β€” until Acquired. We tell the stories behind the deals: how was the company started and what twists did it navigate along the way? What forces propelled its growth and ultimate outcome? Can the magic endure within a larger organization? And most importantly, what lessons can we learn from its journey and apply to our own organizations and careers?
