Founder, Product Hunt
"Ben is one of the most curious people I know, an explorer of nascent technology and evangelist for makers around the world. He approaches product-building with discipline, focused on rapid experimentation to build something people want."
Founder, Iris. Designer
"Watching and learning from Ben has enabled me as a founder to see product from a different pair of eyes. He showed the tech scene what it means to build and harness a fantastic community around the most solid ideas. And I’m so happy he’s going to help others do the same."
Co-Founder, CrazyEgg, KISSmetrics & QuickSprout
""Ben is a prolific maker who made his way into the Silicon Valley tech scene with no prior technical knowledge. His ability to come up with ideas and launch MVPs is so useful and critical to creating a valuable product that I'm glad he is going to teach others the same."
Inventor of the Hashtag
"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"
"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."

Why launch an MVP?
An MVP helps you validate your idea before you dive all in with it. You can; scope out the market, identify potential customers, find co-founders, demo to investors, establish press connection and apply to accelerators. Without an MVP, it's just an idea.
