Seahawks Legend Doug Baldwin Makes The Transition To Tech CEO
Over the course of his eight-season career, Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught 493 passes for 6,563 yards and 49 touchdowns. The Super Bowl XLVIII champion is three years into retirement, and thriving in the tech industry as a rising CEO.
At Stanford, Baldwin earned his Bachelor of Science in Science, Technology and Society. This aided him in making the full-time transition from the football field to the tech world. In 2019, Baldwin's first post-retirement role in the industry was serving as a senior advisor for Intellectual Ventures, a private entity based in Bellevue. From there, Baldwin started his own tech-based companies - Vault 89 Ventures & Ventrk.
Baldwin discussed his plans for using his tech ventures to help youth from all communities to experience tech at the Family First Community Center in Renton in February.
We're really looking into the intersection of physical therapy, technology, and data collection, with the emphasis in engaging with patients to work on their home exercise programs, which is a very significant and deep problem," Baldwin said, citing a goal to democratize access to physical therapy-principled exercise by reaching diverse audiences through digital avenues. "We want people to be healthy," which includes the positive impact on mental health from exercise, he said.
"I'm really grateful for the opportunity; the team that I work with is fascinating — amazing group of people," Baldwin said.
