PASSION PROJECTS ONLY
Old Soul works with early stage brands or products and grows them into scalable businesses. We start and fund the businesses ourselves or we partner with entrepreneurs working in the areas we are most passionate about: Health & Wellness, Clothing, Coffee, Automotive, and Media.
To be considered, Old Soul Project companies must have a proven product, a minimum of $1M in revenue, positive cash flow from operations, be in our targeted industries and share our values.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Standing for something is less risky then standing for nothing.
Sustainable passion projects are profitable and understand the influence of capital.
There is no room for pessimists in entrepreneurship.
The best early stage companies do one thing beautifully.
Empathy is critical to success and impossible to coach.
Innovation and memorable customer experiences flow from being a great place to work.
Leverage technology whenever possible but do it mindfully.
Grow independently as long as possible and then accept that the experience will change.
Motivation, attention, passion and community are the most important ingredients to building a successful business.
FOUNDER & MANAGING PARTNER
Hello, I’m Justin Bigart. I started The Old Soul Projects in late 2018 as a vehicle to work on my passion projects and to help others with theirs. I’ve been an entrepreneur most of my life, initially by necessity and then by choice. My first (and last) real job was right after graduating from the University of Montana and it lasted less than a year. I’ve spent the last 15 years running a Main Street business with my wife and starting, growing and selling an enterprise SaaS company. I’ve learned a lot along the way, mostly the hard way. I wouldn’t say that I’m an expert at anything, but I do know that if you love what you do, you’ll attract other passionate people and, together, you can accomplish amazing things while having fun along the way.
I live in Bozeman, Montana with my wife, Stephanie, son, Wren and our shaggy Griffon, Olive. I love taking pictures, playing guitar, moving in the mountains, thinking in the desert, road tripping via motorcycle, cooking healthy food and searching for the perfect cup of coffee. Reach out below to connect.
Entrepreneurship is not easy. A life in the wind isn't for everyone. Ultimately, success is driven by passion and community - especially for those looking to do more than just make money. A fortunate few get to do work they love and build successful businesses. We believe that these passion projects can be the ultimate form of creative self expression while positively impacting the lives of those involved. This experience is our aim whether we are supporting our own projects or partnering with entrepreneurs.
