Joseph Malchow is an American entrepreneur who cofounded the company Publir.



Malchow was born in Princeton, New Jersey and grew up in Scotch Plains, New Jersey. At 16 he founded JetWare, a software company that developed and sold to consumers applications for Palm OS-powered mobile devices. JetWare's products included Studentmate, which was among the first mobile applications intended for use in the academic environment. The New York Times covered JetWare and Malchow as innovators in mobile computing. Malchow attended Dartmouth College, where he graduated as a James O. Baker Presidential Scholar. At Dartmouth, Malchow led a campaign that placed four independent directors on the Board of Trustees of Dartmouth College. Malchow's involvement was profiled in a 2008 Dartmouth Alumni Magazine article by Jake Tapper.

Malchow later discussed this episode in an extended article coauthored with First Amendment attorney Harvey A. Silverglate.

In 2007 The Wall Street Journal named Malchow a Robert L. Bartley fellow. He has continued to publish regularly in The Wall Street Journal.

After Dartmouth, Malchow worked with semiconductor pioneer T.J. Rodgers from 2008 to 2010. In 2010 he cofounded Publir, a digital advertising exchange reaching 35 million Americans each month and focusing on providing premium programatic advertisements to intellectual publications ranging from The Atlantic to Real Clear Politics. Because of its wide reach and influential participants, Publir is one of the largest invitation-only ad exchanges in the U.S. Digital media properties published by Malchow or monetized by companies he founded reach an average monthly audience of 35 million.

Malchow is an active venture investor and an advisor to technology companies. He is the publisher of Power Line.

In 2012, Forbes named Malchow to its 30 Under 30 list.
