Thanks for

taking action with us.

Join us as we launch the X Genesis One Program.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us, yet again, that wicked problems put our companies, cities, and all of humanity at risk. Addressing them requires a radically different approach. If we’re going to rise to the challenge at hand, we need to engage entrepreneurs who can move at lightning speed to solve novel problems in novel ways.

Beginning May 26th, we will host a 4-week virtual program to catalyze entrepreneurs to launch new ventures that tackle wicked problems connected to COVID-19. We will hand-select a cohort of experienced entrepreneurs and surround them with subject matter experts and talented professionals to vastly accelerate their learning process as they explore and pursue new opportunities.
