Josh Elser

Proud Pittsburgh native (and sports fan), Mars colonization enthusiast, and aspiring tennis player who won’t stop talking about self-driving cars

Josh is a Managing Director with Susquehanna Growth Equity. He leads investments in SaaS and marketplace businesses across several verticals, including proptech, fintech, and HR tech. In 2005, Josh co-founded a real estate investment firm with a portfolio of rental properties where he saw the impact of technology as an operator.

Josh was born in Pittsburgh and loves Pennsylvania despite the ‘yinzer’ and ‘wooder’ dialects of its coasts. (He says pop, not soda if you were wondering). Outside of work, he enjoys any sport that involves a racket or a paddle and exploring the great outdoors with his partner.

Josh graduated with a B.A. in Economics from Yale University.
