JJ Ramberg

JJ Ramberg is one of the premier experts on entrepreneurship and small and medium sized business in the country. As the host of the MSNBC program Your Business (MSNBC's second longest running show), JJ has interviewed thousands of small to medium sized business owners, investors, experts and government officials. The program also features advice from successful entrepreneurs now running large companies including Richard Branson, Sarah Blakely, Jack Dorsey and others.

But JJ is more than just a journalist who covers this field – she is an entrepreneur herself and can speak as someone who has been in the trenches. With her brother Ken, JJ co-founded Goodshop.com – the world's first shopfunding site and one of the premier coupon sites. A leader in the space of social entrepreneurship, Goodshop has forged a connection between retail savings and fundraising – by working with thousands of companies ranging from Target to Kohls to Best Buy to offer consumers coupons that donate back to cause campaigns. To date, Goodshop has saved shoppers more than $100 million and has raised more than $12 million for good causes. Money from Goodshop has gone towards building school playgrounds, paying for lifesaving healthcare and finding good homes for stray animals.

JJ has been honored for her work with Goodshop as well as with MSNBC by organizations including the American Women's Business Association, Self Magazine, The Association of Women Entrepreneurs and Executives and others.

JJ holds her MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband and three children.
