Who is Joshua Kushner?

Though Kushner lives a low-profile lifestyle, he has been transforming both the tech and real estate industries for years.

At just 33 years old, Joshua Kushner has built an empire. Kushner founded Thrive Capital, a venture capital investment firm, and invested money in successful technology companies such as Instagram, Instacart, and Slack.

Kushner has an approach to the modern market that is both innovative and refreshing. In 2012 he co-founded Oscar Health, an insurance company aimed at millennials.

Joshua Kushner’s list of successes doesn’t stop there. In 2015 he decided to bring his tech skills to the real estate industry. Alongside his brother, Jared Kushner, the two launched Cadre, a technology company designed to help clients invest in real estate.

Amongst his many titles of success, Kushner is about to have a new, more romantic one. He will soon be the husband of supermodel and entrepreneur, Karlie Kloss.
