SOOH Media Founder and CEO Selected for Arizona Republic "35 Entrepreneurs 35 and Younger"
PHOENIX, AZ, Nov 07, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Blake Quinn, Founder and CEO of the world's first social-out-of-home
(SOOH) digital marketing and advertising platform, SOOH Media, has
been selected to represent Arizona Republic's sixth annual class of
"35 Entrepreneurs 35 and Younger." Blake joins an elite group of
Phoenix entrepreneurs between the ages of 22 to 35 who have developed
cutting edge companies in a wide range of sectors, including
technology, advertising, banking and restaurant chains.
Blake started SOOH Media in 2011 with the idea of combining photo
kiosk technology with the popularity of social networking. Originally
named Fauxbooth, SOOH Media has since evolved into an interactive
photo and video kiosk network that engages consumers and connects
them with brands through proprietary and integrated local, social and
mobile software. SOOH Media improves upon traditional
digital-out-of-home (DOOH) advertising to help brands like NASCAR,
CBS Radio, Lucky Strike Bowling, and the Phoenix Mercury better
connect with their customers.
"To be selected for '35 Entrepreneurs 35 and Younger' is such an
honor, especially when I look at all of the incredible entrepreneurs
that were selected in this year's group," said Blake Quinn. "There is
a lot of entrepreneurial talent here in Arizona, and I plan on
continuing to promote Arizona as the new destination for
entrepreneurs to start and grow successful companies."
SOOH Media joined Tallwave, a lean business accelerator and venture
management firm, in November 2011 as a Venture Management portfolio
company. Additionally, SOOH Media was recently selected as a 2012 ACA
AZ Innovation Challenge Semi-Finalist. Before SOOH Media, Blake owned
and operated Paper to Digital, a high-volume document scanning
company that serviced the medical and litigation communities.
The Arizona Republic hosts the "35 Entrepreneurs 35 and Younger" each
year to recognize the best and brightest entrepreneurs in Arizona.
Applicants are required to submit an application detailing the
characteristics of their company, as well as their view on what it
means to be a young entrepreneur.
