Josh Luber // The Art of the Sneaker Market

“Ideas are worthless. Execution is the only thing that matters.” After three attempted startups and a lack of enthusiasm for corporate jobs, Josh Luber decided to try a new avenue: one that combined his passion for shoes with his entrepreneurial ability. Three years later and with the help of billionaire Dan Gilbert and experienced businessman Greg Schwartz, the three transformed Josh’s startup into StockX: the world’s first stock market for “things.” Recently valued at over $1 billion, StockX acts as a virtual marketplace for consumers to buy and sell highly coveted products including sneakers, streetwear, collectibles, handbags, and watches. As the former CEO who now serves on the executive leadership team and board of directors, Josh takes us through his entrepreneurial journey from selling blow pops in sixth grade to pioneering the resell market with StockX.
