Sequoia Blodgett

Founder and CEO of 7AM

Sequoia Blodgett started her career as a creative, directing commercials and music videos for some of the top artists and brands in the Entertainment industry. In May of 2014, she fell ill from a rare diagnosis that affects 3 out of one million people. Once she recovered, she decided that she wanted to do something more fulfilling with her life by directly affecting others in an inspirational and uplifting way, while still maintaining her creative essence.

In 2015, she created and launched 7AM, a personal development education platform guided by informed pop culture, while attending Silicon Valley's, 7-week Entrepreneurship Bootcamp, Draper University. This opportunity led her to an investment from VC, Tim Draper and an advisory role on, ABC Family's, "Startup U", a reality series based around the unorthodox, startup ecosystem that Draper University provides.
