StockX CEO to speak to Wayne State students

Josh Luber, co-founder and CEO of StockX, will speak with Wayne State students on Tuesday, April 23, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Mike Ilitch School of Business.

StockX, the world’s first “stock market of things,” is an online marketplace that enables the buying and selling of high-demand consumer products, including sneakers, watches, handbags and streetwear. The platform connects buyers and sellers using the same method as the world’s stock markets—an anonymous, transparent and authentic bid/ask market.

Before StockX, Luber founded Campless, a price guide for sneakers, while working as an IBM consultant. Campless, which evolved into StockX, was known as the Kelley Blue Book for sneakers—a “sneakerhead data” company that tracked the secondary market for sneaker sales, a $6 billion global industry.

Luber has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, London Financial Times, ESPN and The Daily Show, among others. He has collected sneakers for over 30 years and delivered the world’s first TED Talk about them.

This event is hosted by the Ilitch School Sport and Entertainment Management program. All WSU students are invited to attend, but registration is required.
