Blake Squires' Summary

Working on the delicate intersection of software & hardware, I am a technology & product entrepreneur with an appetite for what’s next. I am currently a partner in Hatch and CEO of Movable.

I founded and was Chief Strategy Officer for Findaway, makers of Playaway®, preloaded digital devices which I exited in 2010. Previous to Findaway, I co-founded Adcoda Inc., a digital music download company and I was a founder and Chief Operating Officer of Everstream, a streaming media and digital cable analytics company that sold to Concurrent Computer Corp in 2005.

I've been awarded "40 most influential people under 40" by Crains Magazine and was named an E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year finalist in 2010. My start-up companies have been featured in Time, Forbes, "O", Inc. magazines and in the USA Today, WSJ and NYT.
