Travis Wilson, CEO of Noonday Collection His journey through entrepreneurism and creating opportunity for the underdog. SSN: Where did your global perspective and heart for disadvantaged people come from?
Year Founded: 2010 Executive: Travis Wilson and Jessica Honegger Location: Austin, Texas Expected 2018 Revenue: $20 million Website: www.noondaycollection.comMy perspective has undoubtedly been shaped by my faith and upbringing, where I had some exposure to stories from across the globe through international missionaries who spoke at my church. In college, I visited Africa for the first time as part of a short-term mission trip and it opened my eyes to a world beyond my own that was both quite different and also surprisingly similar. Both my parents were public school educators who worked side businesses over the summer months. My father led and cared for people as an elementary school principal throughout the year and then ran his own service business in the summers. I followed in his footsteps by starting my own service business, which supported me through college, where I studied finance and public policy. All that is to say I’ve always had a passion for business and entrepreneurship. Even more, I’ve always had a heart for the underdog. Entrepreneurship, hard work and developing others are core values that guide my life to this day.
