Ben has a great sense of humor (crucial for thriving in a startup setting), is always curious (essential for helping you get to the root of ... any question), and oh yeah is wicked smart. Also, he has been doing tech startups long enough and successfully enough that he knows a lot of folks you'd be very happy to have on your side. Ben will be your favorite as well as most insightful tech-oriented advisor.
