About Us 1

Our Founder

Blake Hansen has been fascinated with investing and business since he can remember. He made his first investment in the stock market at age 12, and before he had graduated college, he had already purchased 10 real estate properties. His passion is developing partnerships to start and scale companies, and that passion is what led to the formation of Alturas.

Entrepreneurship came naturally for Blake, and he’ll be the first one to tell you he has always struggled with authority. “Conventional” or “status quo” is unacceptable to him and he’s constantly looking for better ways of doing things. And this mentality has trickled down throughout the organization.

Alturas, and everything Blake does, is built on a foundation of partnerships. He started his life with his Twin sister, who was born 9 minutes after him. As a twin, he got used to sharing and having a built in partner to do everything. Continuing into the business world, every business he started and/or scaled had been in partnership with someone else.

His key partner in life is his wife, Kim. They grew up in the same neighborhood and attended pre school together at age 3 (standing next to each other in the class photo). They have six amazing children and spend their time skiing, hiking, camping, whitewater rafting, fly-fishing and doing all types of activities together as a family.
