Joseph N. Sanberg is a public and private-sector entrepreneur and investor harnessing the power of innovation to improve the quality of life for all. He is Co-Founder and Chair of the Board of Advisors for Aspiration, a digital financial services platform for the American middle class. A founding investor in Blue Apron, a fast-growing provider of home-delivered, moderately priced ready-to-prepare meals for individuals and families, Sanberg is also actively involved in a range of other fast growing companies, including Bright Funds, which helps consumers support the causes they care about.
Sanberg believes entrepreneurs have an important role to play in improving public policy and encouraging public service.

Understanding that California’s future is dependent on all of its citizens having real opportunity to succeed economically, Sanberg recently founded Golden State Opportunity Foundation - a platform to support meaningful efforts to improve the lives of lower and middle income Californians through a program of research, analysis, public information and education. An initial project of the Foundation is CalEITC4Me, a statewide outreach campaign to encourage lower income Californians to claim the newly passed state earned income tax credit as well as the federal EITC – fostering economic opportunity and financial security for California’s working families and individuals.
Sanberg began his career as an analyst at Blackstone’s Private Equity Group. He joined Tiger Global Management in 2004, becoming a Managing Director during a period of strong performance for the firm; he left in 2009 to pursue his current activities.
A native of Southern California, Sanberg attended Servite High School in Anaheim where he has created an International Leadership Program that supports students learning Mandarin and visiting China. Sanberg graduated from Harvard University, Magna Cum Laude.
