About Capital Eleven

Capital Eleven is a private equity and investment firm. It was founded in 2009 by Travis Hawkes and David Gardner as a way to formalize “side investments” they had been doing since they met 10 years earlier when they were both full time business students at Boise State University. In 2014, they co-founded Capital Auto Loan, now one of the largest auto lenders in Idaho and Utah. Every investment is focused on creating a win for investors, partners, and customers. Capital Eleven is focused on emerging software companies, retail growth opportunities, and real estate development. We invest in people with passion, projects with vision, and partner with investors and entrepreneurs that share the same values of excellence, grit, and doing what’s right.
