Instructor Biography

Travis Levell, Startup and Internet Marketer

Internet and Startup marketer with 7 years of experience. I have a heart to help new entrepreneurs learn the ropes and expand their business much more quickly than they ever thought possible.

I started my career doing a range of different internet marketing techniques to generate cashflow, including flipping websites, and affiliate marketing.

In the midst of this, I convinced my sister who was a personal fitness trainer to start a local bootcamp (before crossfit was big.) Doing all of the marketing and business development for this I grew this from 0 clients to maintaining over 100 clients served a month, with nice profits to follow. We ended up selling it after a few years.

I then decided to get into tech startup companies as it was always something that I had found fascinating. 3 Years later I've worked with 2 small tech companies personally and started my own consultancy specializing in marketing and web development.

Lately, I've been working with the Founder Institute, the World's largest startup incubator, furthering my own entrepreneurship skills and helping spread great entrepreneur training programs around the world.

On a personal level, I'm striving to reach more entrepreneurs by starting Project Pivotal, a project with the mission to help entrepreneurs learn highly effective practical skills.
