Hi Ben, tell us about yourself?

Hey there, My name is Ben Comstock. I was an orphan in India, adopted by an American family. I grew up in Iowa, moved to Granada, Spain when I was 22 where I lived for 7 years before starting my own company. 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

    This question made me realize how boring I am. :/ 

  • Reading about social economics.

  • Longboarding with friends. 

  • Socializing with strangers.

  • Developing my business and myself. 

… and professionally? What do you do?

I am the co-founder of OfficeAccord - an employee experience platform to help organizations enhance their colleague community.  I am responsible for the commercial side of the business. My cofounder manages the technical side. I know enough code to break things thus I am not allowed near our source code anymore. 

Did you immediately find your dream job? What did your journey to finding your career look like?

I didn’t even know what entrepreneurship was - much less how to spell it - when I started my business. I created it because I saw a need to help organizations create a happier and more productive workforce through technology, but no one else was doing it. So I decided to it myself. 

Where is your favorite place to hang out in OneCoWork?

I kick it in the hot desk area of Gòtic and usually have some random cookies I am trying to give away so I don’t eat the whole packet myself.  Come help me eat them. You don’t have to even say, “hi.”
