Revell Horsey: What is ‘Purpose’ to an Entrepreneur?

Revell Horsey once thought himself incredibly smart, back when he was working in investment banking. He would see small, entrepreneur-led companies and then get them ready to go public.

But it occurred to Horsey one day that he really knew nothing about what it meant to be an entrepreneur, or to have a small company for that matter. In other words, he realized he wasn’t as learned as he once thought.

He wanted to be an entrepreneur, but more specifically, he wanted to know what it meant to be an entrepreneur. So, he thought that the best way would be to get into the trenches, get his hands dirty, and put the mystery of what it really means to start a company to bed.

The experiences were eye-opening, to say the least. In 2005 he set out to leave the world of investment banking behind to focus on entrepreneurship, teaming up with people and visionary founders who were dedicated to a social mission.

Everything he did from that point on was about identifying people who wanted to make social and environmental impacts. Everything was about purpose.

He spoke with us at Tech Cocktail Week in Downtown Las Vegas about purpose and why it’s so important for an entrepreneur.
