Josh is the founder of Social Change Nation, whose mission and passion is to provide startup social entrepreneurs with the best tools for growing their ventures. He hosts a podcast featuring interviews with the worlds leading change agents and creates online content to help startups make a dollar AND a difference.
He’s currently spreading the word about a $1k grant from the Lean Startup school for aspiring social entrepreneurs. The grant is pretty simple – anyone who will chat with their target customers/stakeholders (in person, via email, Skype, etc) and document the results will get funded. Josh did it, and it completely transformed his business.

When he’s not podcasting, Josh can be found cooking up the latest Paleo dish (his fiances fault), cycling all over Gods creation, and/or endeavouring to understand the mysterious ways of the universe.
