Ben and David discuss Amazon's acquisition of Twitch in 2014. Unlike previous episodes, this recent acquisition still has a lot of open questions, and Amazon hasn't publicly reported growth of Twitch since the purchase. Ben and David talk about Justin Kan's original product with Justin.tv, and the transformation into the Twitch that Emmett Shear is running today.
Acquired goes behind the scenes of the best (and worst) acquisitions and IPOs of all time. From the Instagram A+'s to the AOL-Time Warner fails, what can we learn from their journeys and apply to our own organizations and careers in business and in tech?
New episodes twice a month. Guests on occasion.
