Travis Smith

Founder of TribeVest


Please provide a personal bio for other members to get to know you

Professionally I am obsessed with launching TribeVest and creating a Tribe Investing movement that will change the way people build wealth and gain ownership status. My past experience includes various Leadership and Management roles in enterprise software sales and Financial Tech. My areas of expertise include leadership, sales management, go-to-market strategies, FinTech, strategic alliances, and building online communities.

I live in Columbus OH and when I'm not driving TribeVest, I’m maximizing time with my Wife and two boys. I still get on the hardwood twice a week and love planning fishing trips with my 4 brothers. Here's a more personal story about me and how TribeVest came to be.

Please provide an overview of the project(s) you'll be focusing on for the next 12 weeks as part of Unreal Collective.

  • Scale up and expansion of all facets of the business while focusing on mission, metrics, and milestones
  • Product Development - Accelerate product development to bring current services online, which will streamline member onboarding and provide a marketplace for Tribes to grow and develop, while helping TribeVest scale operations
  • Marketing/Business Development - Scale and synchronize marketing to match product schedule and launch.
    • VIP Tribes – we are accepting 5 more VIP Tribes of 3-5 members. VIP Tribes are as important as our first employees. They are not just customers, they are critical to our product design, development, and company culture
  • Hire top talent that fit to scale priority areas of product development, operations, and sales & marketing
  • Secure a maximum of $500,000 in round 1 seed fundraising campaign set to launch in January and close in March 2018.
