Chat Joglekar is an experienced executive and the CEO and co-founder of Baton, a data-enabled marketplace that empowers small business acquisitions. Baton's innovative platform allows owners to unlock liquidity in their most valuable asset, while also providing serious buyers access to a vast but fragmented asset class. Baton's goal is to become the go-to platform for SMB acquisitions, much like Zillow is for real estate.
Prior to founding Baton, Chat served as an executive at Zillow for over five years. During his tenure, he launched and grew the company's New Construction marketplace, generating over $100 million in revenue. He has also played instrumental roles in scaling iconic companies such as Spotify and Google from their earliest stages and has held leadership positions at various early-stage startups.
With the support of investors such as Bloomberg Beta, Giant Ventures, and others, Baton is excited about the potential to create the next great asset class while also supporting small businesses, which are the backbone of our economy. Baton is committed to continuing its mission to enable small business acquisitions and provide a platform for growth and success for all its users. Chat currently resides in New York City with his wife and three children.
