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 — until Acquired.

We tell the stories behind the deals: how was the company started and what twists did it navigate along the way? What lessons can we learn from its journey and apply to our own organizations?

Acquired has over a million downloads, and is consistently among the top Technology shows on iTunes. The show has featured guests such as Kara Swisher, Scott Dorsey, Scott Belsky, and Alfred Lin.

Cool. But who are these guys?

David is a General Partner at Wave Capital in San Francisco, CA.

Ben is the Co-Founder of Pioneer Square Labs in Seattle, WA.
