Growing up immersed in Montreal’s entrepreneurial ethos and startup scene, Josh began teaching himself Objective-C at age 15. In 2012, at age 19 Josh joined the early team of the mobile video app 5by later acquired by the Silicon Valley-based company StumbleUpon. After relocating to Silicon Valley when 5by was acquired by StumbleUpon in 2013, Josh co-founded Ponder (funded by Mark Cuban, Sean Rad of Tinder and Greylock Partners). Josh also worked with teams behind After School and Heyday in Silicon Valley, and Canadian company Breather ($73M raised in US dollars) as one of their first contract hires.
