Evan Stewart

Co-founder, CEO at Basewell

👋 Hey, I'm Evan.

My journey began when I dropped out of college to start a real estate venture. With no money or connections, we bootstrapped and eventually grew to exceed $30M in annual business over 6.5 years. Our team's exceptional performance earned recognition as one of the top real estate teams in the Dallas and Texas markets. That book of business was acquired in 2019 by an associate broker with Compass, a SoftBank-backed real estate startup (IPO $COMP).

After my exit, I consulted with a handful of prop-tech and service-based startups throughout the USA and Canada, helping them grow from early traction to millions in ARR. Many of the companies I consulted with expanded quickly, with their businesses doubling year-over-year on average.

During that time, I developed a thesis about the future of technology: one where tools were beautifully designed and hyper-personalized with AI. I taught myself design and prototyping in Figma, as well as software engineering to start hacking away at these ideas.

That vision led to the creation of Basewell, where I currently serve as co-founder and CEO. We're building adaptive learning tools that use AI to conform to your unique learning and working style, rather than forcing you to work within a rigid system. Our platform has seen remarkable growth, already facilitating tens-of-thousands of interactions each month for companies all around the world.

When I'm not working on Basewell you can find me rock climbing or hiking in the remote Rocky Mountains, or designing/developing projects to help people think, learn, and work better.
