Founder of ThriveLA. Harvard Law graduate with Honors.


Perry Goldberg is a Los Angeles-based lawyer, social entrepreneur and philanthropist who relishes the challenge of solving problems in a wide array of areas. Perry is the President of E Pluribus University (“Pluribus”) (, which he founded in 2013. Pluribus is a 501(c)(3) non-profit developing innovative models for collaborative problem-solving to address global issues. Perry’s focus on problem solving dates back to his childhood. At the age of 12, he devised a unique method for solving the Rubik’s Cube, his fastest time (17 seconds) beating the then- world-record (21 seconds). Perry believes every problem has a solution, and that belief fuels his drive to find those solutions. Pluribus’s first major project – ThriveLA ( – is an attempt to help solve the problem of veteran homelessness by creating a blueprint for modern homesteads in Los Angeles’s high desert. Perry founded this project in February 2015 and leads its vision. He has immersed himself in intensive studies about veteran issues, land development, earthen construction, and desert-specific agriculture. He is excited to put this knowledge to use through the ThriveLA project. Perry graduated with honors from Harvard Law School in 1993 and brings to the ThriveLA project nearly 30 years of legal experience. This expertise has been pivotal in developing ThriveLA’s plan for navigating the thicket of rules and regulations that pertain to the project. As a lawyer, Perry has received numerous industry accolades, including being selected eleven times by Los Angeles Magazine as a Southern California “Super Lawyer.” As an intellectual property litigator, he has helped clients receive more than $1 billion from their intellectual property in judgments, settlements and licenses. Prior to law school, Perry studied economics and finance at the Wharton School of Business, where he graduated in three years in the top 1% of his class. Utilizing his business training, Perry founded Right Angle Ventures LLC (“Right Angle”) ( to pursue various social entrepreneurship opportunities. Through Right Angle, he has purchased approximately 100 acres of land in Los Angeles, most of it in the Antelope Valley. Perry is a fun-loving idealist who believes in enjoying life while trying to make the world a better place.
