Alex Blodgett operates BK Capital, a Vancouver-based investment banking boutique that sources growth capital and advises companies on mergers and acquisitions. His capital markets exposure has been augmented by experience operating a number of both public and private manufacturing, technology and service companies.
Alex has been a long term supporter of BC Cancer. In the midst of that support tenure, he, his wife and his five sons became intimately familiar with BC Cancer when he was diagnosed with Stage IV non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. With a very poor prognosis, the Blodgett’s developed a very deep and personal appreciation for the thoroughness, thoughtfulness and professionalism of everyone at BC Cancer, and understand the value, first-hand, how research saves lives.
Alex has participated in the Ride to Conquer Cancer in each of the last seven years, the most recent two of which were with Daryl’s Heidelberg Hope team to bring radioligand therapy to North America and Harbour Air Cancer Derailleurs to fund research on liquid biopsies. Alex is currently embarking on a project to row the entire coast of BC to raise $1 million to breakdown childhood cancers.
