Episode details

In this episode, we discuss what happens after you sell your company. Ben sold his company to Zapier in 2021 for an undisclosed amount, but it was enough for Ben to retire from working. We discussed why he sold the company, what he did in the first year, and the wave of emotions he felt after selling the company. We also talked about how he spent the money and what he’s investing in today. I also picked his brain on how he’s building an AI Assistant.


Ben Tossell writes an AI Newsletter, Ben’s Bites, and invests in early-stage AI startups. He was previously the founder of Makerpad, a no-code education site, which was acquired by Zapier. He also just launched a new community called Acquired Founders.



The Karnjanaprakorn Show is where I explore ideas across life, startups, and technology. As the former founder of Skillshare, I am now following my curiosity as I figure out my next thing. This show follows that journey, exploring topics like longevity, emerging technologies, living a fulfilling life, and more.
