A maverick in wellness and sustainable technologies, Josh Smith has started and successfully run several businesses. He’s been able to found and develop industries in many arenas because of his global awareness, technological expertise and his market perspective. As an entrepreneur for over 17 years, he has gained comprehensive experience in multinational import/export logistics, compliance, global operations, manufacturing, customs procedures and regulatory approvals.
By utilizing all of this knowledge, one of his successes is the modular-hinge house, a greenhouse for residential sites. This invention has filled a need; because it overcomes the reason most homeowners who garden resisted the urge to buy a greenhouse in the past. Now with the modular-hinged greenhouse, it is easier for everyone to grow edible plants. Joshua Smith is very committed to children, so he founded a non-profit that builds gardens and greenhouses giving K-12 children exposure to them. Mr. Smith anticipates that home and community gardens will participate in growing organic fruits and vegetables now that is more feasible to do so.
Mr. Smith leads with theories of eco-socio-capitalism determining his choices. It’s a state that transcends the concept of the triple bottom line. He believes an entrepreneur should use a capitalistic view to develop products and services that improve the environment and provide a social benefit to society. Essentially he puts capitalism in the driver’s seat taking responsibility for making the world a better place.
Josh Smith unites with skilled teams of professionals to transition from his artistic perspective to his entrepreneurial engagement. As a serial entrepreneur, he has time and again used his creative/inventive mind to create a business idea. Then relied on his hands on knowledge to bring the idea to market and take the business to a successful operating state.
Mr. Smith made a few statements about his beliefs for tomorrow. He’s very excited about the growth of organic and home gardening. He believes college will soon be obsolete. Everyone should be willing to except the raw unvarnished truth. Willingness to adapt has been instrumental in his business growth. With these underlying beliefs, Joshua Smith continues to flourish and most probably will start yet another successful business in the near future.
