Travis Wallis

I'm a human that likes to connect, build, and innovate. My latest company is called Time Advisors where we work with Blockchain; Fintech; B2B SaaS; Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning; and IOT / Robotics companies to semi-automate their fundraising activities. I also personally work with Funds to help them in various ways. I currently advise Serve.io, SPoT Supply Chain Solutions, and Protocol Ventures, the first Crypto Fund of Funds.

Background

I most recently co-founded and served as Chief Solutions Office of OutboundWorks, an automated, account based b2b lead generation company. Our discovery was that we could provide 1.5x the results of Sales Development Reps (SDRs) at 65% of the cost using systematic process, data, automation, and empathy on behalf of customers. The company is scaling and is backed by True Ventures and NextGen Venture Partners. 

Before that I started TH₃ORY, a technology focused sales consultancy; was Co-Founder of Hifi Digital, a millennial-focused micro-learning company; served as VP, Revenue (Membership Sales) for FACTORY, a stealth, venture backed innovation membership network; and served as VP of Product and Sales at PeopleBrowsr, a social media analytics company.

At this point, I've developed a special skill: taking companies from zero to something. I have specific expertise and have failed enough to recognize the patterns and connections between people that others may not see.

Education

I've learned more from conversations and working late than anywhere else. Early in my life I was taught to seek out teachers, as having them taught me the importance of teaching. I attended post-graduate studies and earned a BA in Political & Economic Theory from Albion College where I was a Presidential Fellow. Learning social skills as an awkward, know-it-all country kid were the highlights of my undergraduate career. Most importantly, there was a teacher there that taught me how to critically think and believed in my capabilities to do great things. I owe him more than I can voice, despite at that time being quite tough to withstand.

I have lived in in San Francisco for 10 years and am moving to Austin in early 2019. I have a morning practice, am a student of yoga and meditation, and studying under the Segyu and Zen Buddhism traditions. I'm also mentoring a few kids and CEOs. They teach me more than I could ever teach them.
