Our Purpose and Mission

Our mission is to help businesses succeed by providing the resources and support they need to grow, scale, and transition.

We are entrepreneurs first and foremost. We founded Twelve31 with the purpose of helping businesses succeed.”

Founder, Twelve31, Inc.

A Brand New Way

Our team includes MBA’s and finance geeks, full stack engineers, and operational experts.  We have former college athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, and BBQ cultists. Some are hunters, some are golfers, and some just like hanging out with their family on the weekends.

Some have thirty years of experience; some have 2 months. Some went to the fancy schools, others worked on Wall Street, some learned on the job and built-up deep industry expertise.

Collectively, we have learned business from sleeping under the shipping table, having invoices go unpaid and struggling to make payroll. We learned it from making great hires and terrible ones. We struck transformative deals for our companies and signed others that we would never do again.

There’s no substitute for experience, and no faster way to gain it than by building something from nothing.

Our respect for our fellow entrepreneurs flows from this experience. We know just how much pain, hard work and risk went into building a company that customers love and keep coming back to.

Regardless of interests or background, our team is committed to helping small business entrepreneurs and to our companies. We share a deep passion for small businesses of all types and are united by the belief that our best will always lie ahead of us.
