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?

Customer Reviews

Very Enjoyable

Even for someone on the outside of the tech and finance industries looking in these guys do a great job of telling interesting and understandable stories.

Awesome - new fave podcast

Love the insight and the enthusiasm these guys have for their subjects. Also love the consistent format of rating acquisitions, 'what would have happened' etc.

Well Done

A friend of mine sent me the Sonos episode, and it has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts.
