Customer Reviews

Awesome well thought out analysis

David and Ben work really well together and put together accessible, but fairly deep analyses of some really interesting acquisitions. Great way to get familiarized with how acquisitions are approached and evaluated in different industries. Keep it up guys!

Best podcast in existence

This podcast is without a doubt the best podcast that is currently in existence. I started listening only a couple months ago, and have already gone back and listened to all the older episodes.

Acquired is changing the way I think about Tech, has taught me a fortune about business, and is bottomlessly entertaining.

I could not recommend this podcast more!

Subscribe, and make sure to go listen to the old episodes. There are some real gems.

Podcast is 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Found this podcast and I love it, I’ve been looking for something like this for over a year now!

Dave and Ben are great hosts, really down to earth guys that aren’t afraid to break down every situation for you, along with some business words you might not know!

This podcast has been a HUGE help for me since I’m looking to build a new social media platform. They’ve provided me with so many tips when it comes to fundraising and how to talk to investors.

Thank you to you both creating this podcast!

PS I will be on this podcast one day.
