Josh Schanker

Thanks for visiting my personal website. I'm the founder and president of BookBub, and an entrepreneur that lives and works in Cambridge, MA.

Previous companies I've started include Sombasa Media, an email marketing firm sold to, and Sconex, a social networking site for teens sold to Alloy Media + Marketing.

I've also more recently advised, invested in, or helped launch a few other internet and media startups including TurningArt, Qwobl (Adnamic), Broadway Commerce, and Plympton. I'm still involved with these companies to varying degrees, but my focus these days is on BookBub.

I'm an alum of Harvard College and MIT Sloan, and have stayed involved with a number of groups and initiatives connected to the schools, including serving on the graduate advisory committee of The Harvard Crimson.
