Travis retires from professional basketball and tried his hand in entrepreneurship. He founds Sunshine Heroes Foundation, Lift Credit, Tesani Companies and starts to realize how hard it is to find good HR and payroll software.

Ryan, now a senior at BYU and budding entrepreneur, asks Travis for help turning an idea into a business. Travis notices through building his businesses how hard it is to find and keep awesome employees. Frustrated with the lack of good solutions, he decided to build one himself. After 6 months of research they realize that every small and medium business is crippled by old software and outdated processes.


They combine efforts and launch Eddy. The first task: find a world-class team of product experts and software engineers. It took almost a full year to recruit five-star product and engineering stars from their corporate jobs to our start-up but we did it!
