Justin Bavier Hopes to Enable Charitable Giving

Justin Bavier is a relatively new member at the EC, but he's already busy at work making his idea into a business. Justin is "working on an app that rounds up a user's everyday transactions to the nearest dollar, and then donates the extra change to a charity of the user's choice." Justin took a moment to answer our (new!) questions in this week's EC Member Spotlight. 

What is your personal motto?

Never stop growing! 

What characteristic do you admire most in successful entrepreneurs?

The ability to identify a problem and come up with an effective solution that can be utilized by just about anybody.

What tool, object or ritual could you not live without in your workday?

The internet and Spotify.

What advice would you give to someone seeking to create, launch, or grow a business?

Don't let the fear of not knowing what you're doing hold you back. You'll never get anywhere if you don't take that first step!

What does the world need more of?

I think the world could use a bit more positivity right now.

Why the EC?

It's an inspiring community! Everyone is so driven and passionate about their work. I also really like the fact that all the members I've spoken to have been very willing to pass on advice and talk to you about what they have learned from their past experiences. I'm still rather new to the entrepreneurial world so it has been really cool to work in an environment where people are so generous with their knowledge.
