CEO & Co-Founder | StockX
Josh Luber is the co-founder and CEO of StockX, the world’s first “stock market of things”. StockX is an online marketplace, initially focused on sneakers, which connects buyers and sellers using the same method as the world’s stock markets — an anonymous, transparent and authentic ‘bid/ask’ market. Before StockX, Josh founded Campless while working as an IBM consultant. Campless, which evolved into StockX, was a “sneakerhead data” company that tracked the secondary market for sneaker sales, a $6 billion global industry. Josh has collected sneakers for more than 30 years.
