Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Josh Elman is a Product leader focused on disruptive products that change the way people interact and communicate with each other and discover new information. He has been lucky to be a part of several of the most significant internet and social companies and led or was involved in key projects that have altered their trajectories including early product and platform roles at LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Josh led the product, marketing, and design teams at Robinhood as we more than doubled the userbase, revenue, and the team. I've also spent many years at Greylock as a General Partner where I led investments and served on the board of the next wave of social products including Discord, Musical.ly (now Tiktok), Medium, and more. I have gotten to work in the early stages of LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Robinhood before they became much larger companies. And as a VC I invested in Medium, Discord, Tiktok (then Musical.ly), and SmartThings.
