Josh has been building technologies to empower consumers for over a decade. He is a programmer turned entrepreneur, mentor and angel investor. He co-founded 3 companies over the past 10 years and 2 had successful exits. He achieved some notoriety for smashing a fax machine with a baseball bat during his pitch for Zosh at Demo conference.
