Acquired is a free podcast with a Slack group that features success stories from CEOs and founders of top technology companies worldwide.

Each podcast episode features a different expert who shares their journey with the audience. The Acquired podcast episodes last between one and one and a half hours. The idea is to interview the expert (who sometimes offers a masterclass) to analyze what made great acquisitions successful. You can subscribe for free to receive the last episodes directly to your inbox.

Additionally, the community has a Slack group that allows members to chat in real-time with others.  You can also become a limited partner with the LP Program to get additional perks. The membership costs $10 a month or $100 a year. It gives you 2 weeks of early access to all podcast episodes, exclusive access to the community's book club, and Zoom calls with founders and industry experts.
