Thiel Fellow and BRINC Founder/CEO joins IMA Board of Advisors

Blake is the CEO/Founder of BRINC. He started taking college courses at the age of 14, and then attended Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering. Before launching the sUAS start-up, he worked at McLaren Automotive, Tesla Motors, and DJI Inc. He is also a member of the Thiel Fellowship’s class of 2020. Blake has the innate ability to define a problem, imagine a new approach and create a technology-based solution. His engineering skills include mechanical design, firmware development, electrical design, testing, high voltage systems, vacuum systems, composite design, additive manufacturing and CNC machining. 

BRINC designs, manufactures and sells sUAS systems to law enforcement and defense departments worldwide. His willingness to form collaborative partnerships with public safety officials gave birth to BRINC’s first product, the LEMUR. Using lidar technology, the drone flies indoors with precision and unprecedented agility, and its two-way communication system allows first responders to hear and see through the drone. Blake is currently working on an sUAS mesh system designed to respond to 911 calls and gunshot detections within seconds.

When not enveloped in product development, he actively engages in talent recruitment, strategy, meeting with executives, and speaking with current and future investors. He recently negotiated and closed a $2 million Seed round and a $25 million Series A funding round.
