Entrepreneur to Deliver WSC 2021-22 Commencement Address
Entrepreneur and philanthropist Blake Johnson ’95 will deliver the 2021-22 commencement keynote addresses to the Webb School of California.
Johnson is a Los Angeles-based entrepreneur who has founded and sold several businesses valued at more than $1 billion, including Byte, a direct-to-consumer dental aligner company that Forbes lauded as the fastest company ever to reach a billion in valuation not funded by venture capital or outside investors.
Johnson is also active in multiple philanthropic endeavors. He created the Blake Johnson Alliance to inject innovative approaches into community support. While running Byte during the pandemic, he converted his 3D printers to make masks, face shields and ventilator parts for frontline healthcare providers.
Johnson was honored by Webb in 2020 with an Alumni Outstanding Achievement Award
“My Webb education has played a part in every success I’ve had – it taught me to think, to lead, to have a great work ethic,” he said.
The Webb School of California will hold its commencement ceremony at 5 p.m. Saturday, June 4. To watch a livestream of the event, click here.
