Being the top NBA draft pick in history for a university as prestigious as Stanford is impressive. Even more impressive is to note that he got to Stanford after growing up in one of the toughest communities in the country: Compton. Now after a career in the NBA with Atlanta, Phoenix, Brooklyn, and New Orleans, Josh founded the Landspire Group. Drawing on more than a decade of experience as a venture capitalist and real estate developer, Josh has created an investment platform for people of color, helping to revitalize their communities. Josh is also the seed investor in the largest black-owned cannabis company, and part owner in the only black and minority-owned sports team in Australia. We couldn’t be more excited to have Josh as a member of the IC #NerdTribe as he makes his Think Big Festival debut.
