Joshua Spodek

A Professor at NYU and columnist for Inc. magazine, Joshua Spodek holds five Ivy-League degrees, including a PhD in Astrophysics and an MBA, both from Columbia University. He helped build an X-ray observational satellite orbiting the Earth as part of a multi-billion-dollar decade-plus mission led by the European Space Agency with NASA.

Spodek left academia to co-found Submedia, to bring to market his invention—a technology to show motion-pictures to subway riders moving between stations—starting the field of commercial in-tunnel motion-pictures. Submedia has grown worldwide to install dozens of displays in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Spodek also co-founded and helped lead several education ventures, including partnering with New York City Public Schools. He has taught art at Parsons the New School for Design and NYU-Tisch’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP).

Spodek is the author of Leadership Step by Step: Become the Person Others Follow.
