What's this show all about?

Acquired tells the stories behind great companies, diving deep into the events and strategies that brought them to where they are today.

The show originally started covering "acquisitions that actually went well", examining the reasons behind the rare successful outcomes to understand how we can apply the learnings to our own organizations. As the show grew, we realized every great company -- whether it got acquired, went public, or is still private -- has incredible stories to be told.

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, Nolan Bushnell, Rahul Vohra, and Doug Leone.

Cool. But who are these guys?

David is a Venture Capitalist based in San Francisco, CA.

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