ABERDEEN, S.D. – Aberdeen, entrepreneur Travis Kiefer’s passion is developing technology-based businesses. He thinks big and sets large goals. The 28-year-old has racked up some impressive achievements since graduating from Groton, 20 miles east of Aberdeen. He attended Stanford University on a full-ride scholarship. While in California, he experienced his first big success with a software-based business that helped people book tours.
