    • Business

Ben is a fascinating founder. Over his 15-year career as an entrepreneur, he started and sold 2 companies – Yodle to Web.com for $350 million, Opcity to Realtor.com for $200 million – and hired over 2,000 people. If you do the math, that's about $35 million in value creation and 130 new jobs per year. Crazy!



On this episode of the Startup Exits Podcast, we chat with Ben about:

• Disrupting Yellow Pages

• How to be good at sales

• How to build a 1000-person sales team

• Ben’s first exit – Web.com acquires Yodle

• Do founders need industry expertise?

• Ben’s second exit – Realtor.com acquires Opcity

• Can you buy a home without humans involved?

• Future of local advertising
