Joe Lonsdale

In 2004, Joe Lonsdale cofounded Palantir Technologies — a software company in Palo Alto, California which develops mission-critical analysis systems used by government and financial organizations around the world. Palantir is a market leader in several government segments, is widely used by large hedge funds and banks, and is one of the fastest growing mid-size companies in Silicon Valley.

Joe currently serves as CEO of Addepar, an emerging leader in private wealth management technology, and is the President of Anduin, which specializes in early-stage venture investing.

He is also the Chairman of the Board for ONEHope Wine, a national wine brand partnered with the Mondavi family and a leader in cause marketing technology, and is an advisor to several Silicon Valley technology companies.

Previously, he worked with the financial arm of PayPal while at university and then joined as an early executive at Clarium Capital, and was a key player in growing Clarium into a 5-billion AUM world-class global macro hedge fund during his five year tenure. Joe has a variety of philanthropic pursuits including sitting on the Board of Strive for College and The Seasteading Institute.

He earned a BS in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2003, where he also studied Economics and Mathematics.
