Ben Lang

I’ve spent my life hopping between New York, Tel Aviv, and San Francisco. I'm a builder, former founder, and community guy, always in multiple places at one time. I was an early member of the Notion team, where I led community for nearly 5 years. I actively make angel investments and advise a few select startups. I’m helping world-class talent discover what’s next through next play.
