Our Purpose

To create epic journeys of growth that unlock our community's potential.

Our story

We are both incredibly grateful for our Yale undergraduate experience, but felt there was something fundamentally lacking from our four years on campus. We were high on theoretical knowledge, but low on skills. We'd both studied abroad, but the experience failed to leave a lasting mark. We dreamed of creating a university that prepared students for the future, pushed students to travel and explore, and inspired them to crave challenging themselves and pushing themselves out of their comfort zone.
