Dalton Caldwell

Dalton Caldwell is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mixed Media Labs, a position he has held since February 2010. Mixed Media Labs is a startup whose first product is [picplz], a photo broadcasting application for iPhone and Android mobile devices.

Caldwell co-founded imeem in 2004 and served as its CEO, responsible for imeem’s strategic vision and guiding its overall product direction.

Under Caldwell’s guidance, imeem pioneered and helped popularize the advertising-supported streaming music model. In 2007, the company signed landmark agreements with the world’s four major record companies, becoming the first company to offer music to U.S. consumers to freely stream and share with the costs supported by advertising. That innovation helped imeem become one of the world’s leading online music services, reaching millions of people each month through the imeem site and its network of embedded music and video playlists.

Caldwell graduated from Stanford University with dual degrees in Psychology and Symbolic Systems. He lives in San Francisco.
