Nitin Nohria, who led Harvard Business School for a decade, will join Joshua Kushner’s venture capital firm Thrive Capital as partner and executive chairman.

Kushner, the brother of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, met Nohria as a business student at Harvard University. Kushner, 36, founded his New York-based VC firm in 2009 and made lucrative investments in the real estate brokerage Compass Inc. and the stock-trading app Robinhood Markets Inc.
