Travis Financial Partners unconventional business model provides capital of up to $2500 in seed capital to people that have a viable business idea. In return for the micro financing, the company helps its recipients to establish a legal entity and becomes a minority owner in the newly developed entity. Each entrepreneur is partnered with a local businessperson as a mentor to help them to be able to build a business. What’s even more unconventional about this model – this company intends to aid younger individuals from economically depressed communities. “In 2006 says Travis - as I walked through a community in downtown Atlanta, not too far from where Dr. King attended church, I remember seeing a vibrant neighborhood, though economically imbalanced to other neighborhoods I’ve visited. The wonderful people of this neighborhood have goals, dreams and could provide a great deal of benefit to society if just given the chance.” Travis states “When I spoke to one of the people that were about to graduate high school, his goal was to go to college but did not know how to finance it. That made me realize, just by helping one person we can build up a community.”
As a company, Travis Financial partners invests in minds, people that have a viable idea and have the hard work and dedication needed to bring their idea through to fruition. Their main investments can be for web based companies to software development ideas. “Mainly, these companies only need enough seed money to help them get off the ground. We even had a request for $900 to help buy a years worth of server space while the entrepreneur dedicates their time to software. We don’t only invest the $900, we give our expertise and provide whatever help we can to make this person a success. If they succeed, we succeed and their entire community succeeds” States Travis.
“In the end, someone believed in me enough to invest a substantial sum of capital and turn my business ideas into a success. I believe its time to give back and use my success and good fortune to help others” stated Travis.
