Travis Smith, the founder and CEO of Tribevest, comes from a family of doctors. Yet, he pursued
finance instead of medicine because he sought financial independence, which the latter did not
seem to offer. Despite having a good income as a doctor, financial freedom was still miles away in a
doctor’s profession. So, 15 years ago, he decided to venture into the business world. He didn’t
know what way to go, which path to follow, and what deals to find. But he knew something: he
wanted to break into real estate and own a business.
Today, he joins the Real Estate Investing For Medical Professionals podcast to share his personal
wealth journey and how it took shape into financial independence. Starting with forming an LLC to
creating Tribevest, a whole platform for launching LLCs, he gives away everything that went into
the journey. He went from seeing financial independence as a personal need, to building a tribe that
helps limited partners to come together, pull their capital, and invest in higher thresholds. This
allows them to get better terms, play the role of a co-GP, and achieve financial freedom.
Tribevest takes care of all the administrative work and makes it easy to file an LLC, open up a business bank account, onboard members, set up an equity cap table, and wire funds.
Learn about the platform and its services for forming investment tribes in this episode and get
inspired to accelerate your entrepreneurial journey. Travis’s goal is to make investing in real estate
syndications more accessible and easier for groups of friends or family.

“When we focus specifically on passive investing into real estate syndication, we can really even
automate this and make it even 10 times easier.“ – Travis Smith
