Blake Craig is the Co-Founder and Chief Labor Officer at Laborjack, LLC. Probably best understood as the Uber of Labor, Laborjack matches a flexible and ambitious labor force - mostly comprised of college students - with those needing stuff done. Initially conceived to become “The world’s largest moving company! - that doesn’t own any trucks”, Laborjack clients have now found hundreds of ways to engage a flexible workforce! Laborjack offers everything from event set-up and tear-down to garage clean-outs to landscaping projects and festival staffing, and many more business clients than initially imagined.

This is a bootstrapped startup story at its best, with an idea birthed as a college side-gig, incubated through several years of a commercial real estate career, and now taking on private investment en route to a Series A down the line.  It’s a story of taking small risks, with a direction in mind, and making the sacrifices necessary to allow an enterprise to grow to a sustainable venture.  Godspeed, good sir! - I’ve learned much from you, and we’ll all be cheering for your strong success!
