"Equal parts debonair and winsome, Ben possesses a real product thinker and innovator's mind. His experience at Product Hunt girds his foundation in what will and won't work in the marketplace, and, coupled with his cunning ingenuity and care for craft, he's the guy I'd go to for my next MVP"



Holly Stephens

Founder, Triangles

"I had an idea and Ben was able to guide me through to launch, start on a budget and grow a community. My business wouldn't be as successful as it is today without his help. We've gone from 0 - 1000 users in 5 months. His guidance and support is extremely valuable. I always recommend startup founders speak to him so I'm thrilled he's helping more entrepreneurs."
