When I was fourteen, I learned how to code so I could pull pranks on my buddies. When I was seventeen, I started a company called Hyper to help folks sell memberships to Discord servers. Six months later I left high school, and in June 2021 we set up shop in Palo Alto. We raised $17M and then sold the business in 2023.
Right now I'm thinking about what I might do next. If you've got any ideas for me, send me an email at benbotvinick at
