Josh Luber is the co-founder of StockX, the world’s first “Stock Market of Things." StockX is an online marketplace that allows users to buy and sell high-demand consumer products, including sneakers, watches, handbags and streetwear. The platform 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, a price guide for sneakers, while working as an IBM consultant. Campless, which evolved into StockX, was known as the Kelley Blue Book for sneakers -- a “sneakerhead data” company that tracked the secondary market for sneaker sales, a $6 billion global industry. Josh has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Financial Times, ESPN, and The Daily Show, among others. He has collected sneakers for over 30 years and delivered the world’s first TED Talk about them.
