Our purpose

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.

iXperience started in 2013 as a study-abroad coding bootcamp that would bridge the gap between academia and industry. Since then, it's grown into a global operation that has helped more than 1000 students accelerate their career while exploring the world. Throughout, our focus has stayed on creating authentic connections within our community. We go to great lengths to get to know our students, teachers, and partner companies, which we believe has been instrumental to our success.

Why
FOLLOW YOUR WHY

Why are you here? What do you want to experience? How do you want to contribute to others? These are the questions that guide the journeys of our students and core team.

Learn
BE A LEARNING MACHINE

We challenge our team to be disciplined learners who continually evolve, step by step, day by day. At iX, it's OK to make mistakes—it's not OK to not learn from them.

Relationships
FORGE DEEP RELATIONSHIPS

We believe what makes work ultimately rewarding are the people you share your time with. We dine together, hike, surf, and gym together, and travel the world together.

Our team

Collectively, we've founded and sold huge companies, created and managed Masters Degrees, served in the Navy, managed portfolios worth millions of dollars, and even raised two kittens.
