Justin Blaine



Used to pitch baseballs, now I'm pitching companies to acquire our clients.

Retired baseballer. Active father, husband, son, teammate. Making progress each day. When I'm not enjoying my family and AthletesTouch, I'm helping private companies understand their value and telling the story that makes a buyer or seller engage.

Soft surfboards to manufacturing fuel-efficient kits on planes. Educational software solutions to commercial chain link fences. Those examples sum up the diversity of our client base. The process of valuing and selling a business is typically very similar, even when results may be very different. We work with owners looking to exit or acquire other companies to grow. $10 million to $200 million in revenue.

    Can you inspire others to financially support the causes you hold near and dear to your heart?
     
    Join AthletesTouch for an immersive conversation with, LISA SMITH-BATCHEN, who has raised millions of dollars using her greatest gifts!
     
    World-class endurance athlete and ultrarunner, Lisa Smith-Batchen has competed in countless races around the world. She is the only American to have won the Marathon des Sables, a 160-mile stage race through the Sahara. She has completed Badwater nine times (a race through the most extreme conditions and elevation changes imaginable), including a double and quad crossing (i.e. 584 miles), and has won the race twice. Lisa Smith-Batchen is also the first person to run 50 miles in each of the 50 states, which she did to specifically raise money for orphans. In April of 2016, she set out to try and set the record for the fastest crossing across the USA, from Los Angeles to New York City. On day 5 she was rushed to the hospital where she ended up having emergency surgery to remove her gallbladder!
     
    Co-owner and founder of the Dreamchasers Foundation, she and her husband Jay Batchen offer personalized training and camps to help other athletes achieve their goals. 100% of the proceeds go to the Dreamchasers Foundation and to Aids Orphans Rising.

  • Wall Street’s Endangered Species: The College Jock

    Member: Justin Blaine (Co-Founder)

    Great article discussing the transition in Financial Institutions to more Artificial Intelligence and how former athletes are seeing a shift in opportunities out of college. However, "They say the core attributes needed to make multimillion-dollar bets are discipline and quick thinking—two traits honed by sports. They argue those skills are still invaluable in the corporate bond market, where banks and other intermediaries take chances every time they hold securities as they look to match buyers with sellers. This is especially true in moments when prices swing violently." Check out the full article by clicking on the following: WSJ Article LINK
