Blake has served many roles in the mortgage industry but most recently launched Future Mortgage in October 2021. He noticed a shift in the market and technology and wanted to position his team to succeed. He first started creating his pitch decks in May of 2021 and begin the journey of meeting with investors. During that journey, Blake met with Travis Hawkes and David Gardner from Capital Eleven here in Boise, ID and they hit it off instantly. Shortly after they closed their seed round and began forming the company.
