Solar panels are considered the future of energy for the world, as well as an excellent way to lower a personal carbon footprint. Ted Rollins recognized this and began a renewable energy initiative. He installed solar panels in three of the Campus Crest Communities properties, allowing these properties to generate 20 percent – 50 percent of their own energy. In addition to being a viable option to lower the carbon footprint of a person or site, using solar panels to reduce energy use also has long-term economic advantages.  

TXG Capital and the Ideal Candidate

TXG Capital is interested in companies that combine profitability with sustainability. However, there are a few more qualities that TXG is looking for in their ideal investment candidate. These include:

Companies that are involved in a residential real estate niche. This can include any sort of real estate niche, but TXG is focused on companies that focus on development. As CEO of Campus Crest Communities, Rollins has many years of experience growing and expanding businesses in this market. 

Companies that offer financial services. Now, "financial services" is a fairly broad definition. However, what TXG would find idea is a company that has been developed vertically. The vertically integrated business model is one that controls all of the activities that create and maintain the consumer experience. At Campus Crest Communities, the company owned a development company that would find the land, the demolition company to build the apartments, the supply company that would supply the materials, owned the management company that would manage the property, had the assets to finance the property, and therefore controlled everything within that continuum. 

Though these attributes would greatly benefit investments, TXG Capital is open to all businesses that feel a commitment to sustainability as well as the creation of capital. Contact us today at info@txgcapital.com for more information. 

4 Pillars: TXG and Conscious Capitalism

Conscious capitalism is an enormous part of TXG Capital's mission. Conscious capitalism has four main pillars: higher purpose, conscious leadership, conscious culture, and stakeholder orientation. But what does that mean exactly? 

Higher purpose means that a company focuses on something besides a profit. For Mr. Rollins and TXG Capital, that purpose is sustainability and community outreach. TXG Capital is about investing in companies that have something besides the bottom line in mind: companies with a higher purpose. 

Conscious leadership is about the leaders within the company, in this case, Mr. Rollins. Mr. Rollins has shown with his involvement in other companies that he is willing to come into work every day, put aside the "me", and focus on the "we". The best leaders are stewards of others first, and this is something that Mr. Rollins strives to achieve every day. 

Conscious culture is a little bit different. This refers to the atmosphere and interaction between members of the company. These are the values and principles that make up the culture of the company. Conscious culture creates an environment of trust and respect for companies, increasing their effectiveness and making the workplace more accessible. 

The final pillar of conscious capitalism is stakeholder orientation. Stakeholder orientation focuses on creating an effective business community, creating and optimizing value for stakeholders. 

 

TXG Capital, Ted Rollins, and Sustainability

As a real estate developer, Ted Rollins is no stranger to the current state of the environment. However, development and sustainability often present a conflict of interest. Rollins refuses to compromise the environment in any way, and his commitment to conscious stewardship of the environment has lead him to maintain a fine balance between development and sustainability.

Rollins' commitment to eco-friendliness extends far beyond his involvement with TXG Capital. As the CEO and co-founder of Campus Crest Communities, Rollins led countless initiatives to improve the environment. He installed solar panels on the buildings in his apartment complexes, focused on keeping the water in the surrounding areas clean and healthy, and headed countless recycling programs. He was involved in the Clear Water Initiative as well as the Institute of Built Environment, and took the practices that he learned through his involvement with these organizations and implemented them in his business. Rollins is a true conscious capitalist, and TXG Capital will maintain his commitment to sustainability.
