Josh Funder is CEO and Managing Director of Household Capital. Prior to founding the company in 2016, Josh was a director of Celladon Inc. (NASDAQ: CLDN) and spent over a decade as partner at GBS, Australia’s largest venture funds management firm. Josh has served as chairman and director of US and Australian companies including Peplin (ASX: PLI) and Spinifex Inc. and is a winner of the AVCAL early stage investment award. He previously worked at Infinity Inc (NASDAQ: INFI) in Boston, and at the Boston Consulting Group in San Francisco.

Josh is a co-founder, director and former chairman of Per Capita.
He is also author of the novel ‘Watson’s Pier’ which was written by Joshua in 2015 on centenary of Gallipoli.
Stan Watson was Joshua’s maternal great grandfather who Josh remembered well as he died aged 97 when Josh was about 15. Stan was an engineer with the South Australian Railways in civilian life (he had a brilliant career retiring as a Commissioner of the SAR in 1953) and landed at Gallipoli on 25 April and left on the last day - he was instrumental in building a pier that was critical in the extraordinarily successful evacuation of the Peninsula in Dec 1915 (about the only successful operation in the sorry disaster of the campaign!!)
