Tribevest, the first collaborative, group investment platform, today announced the launch of its latest, enhanced banking tool enabling investor groups to set up business bank accounts and fund their newly formed business ventures in less than 48 hours. Tribevest partnered with Unit, a banking-as-a-service platform, to enable rapid access to business banking for group investors.

“Before Tribevest, family and friends looking to invest together spent over $3,000 and 100 hours to set up their legal business entity and business bank account,” said Travis Smith, founder and CEO of Tribevest. “Our enhanced banking tool leverages Unit’s technology to help investor groups start transacting 85% faster. We're proud that Tribevest empowers friends, family, and financially aligned groups to invest together — without a country club network.”

The partnership with Unit enables Tribevest’s investor groups to easily make individual capital contributions to an FDIC-insured business checking account and withdraw funds for investments. Unit’s technology helps tech companies launch and embed financial features into their products.

“At Unit, our mission is to make it easy for tech companies to build financial features into their products,” said Itai Damti, CEO of Unit. “Tribevest has already become a game-changer for investor groups over the last couple of years. We believe our partnership takes Tribevest to the next level.”

Based on your investor group size, Tribevest’s annual pricing starts as low as $3 per member and monthly at $5 per member. The core features of Tribevest include:

  • Tribe Operations & Dashboard. Collaborative, transparent space for members to share, record, and vote in real-time

  • Business Creation & Banking. Create multi-member LLC in all 50 states and FDIC Banking Account in one combined single step

  • Capital Contributions. Members can link their personal accounts and set up recurring capital contributions

  • Portfolio & Member Management. Tools to manage the company cap table, track transactions, and manage LLC

In the midst of the pandemic, Tribevest saw significant growth with a 400% increase in investor group creation from October 2020 to April 2021. To date, 60% of tribes invest in real estate, 15% put their money in investment syndicates or funds, and 10% target business ventures, collectibles, cryptocurrency, and the stock market.
