Travis Smith is the Founder and CEO of Tribevest, a platform that makes it easy to invest as a group and do deals together in as little as 48 hours. He started his career with Morgan Stanley but realized the most direct path to wealth and financial freedom wasn’t through the public stock markets but by taking ownership in real assets. To overcome the many barriers to entry into the private markets, he is a member of several investor groups (he calls tribes) that invest in various real estate deals, startups, and cryptocurrencies. But his favorite investor group is the one that enables him to own vacation homes and even a racehorse with his brothers. Travis is obsessed with building a platform that standardizes and streamlines and ultimately de-risks group investing. He won’t stop until every single deal on and off the internet is an opportunity for a multi-player experience.
We talked to Travis about group investing, their journey in forming their platform “Tribevest” and what this platform enables for group investing.
