About Us

ABOUT X GENESIS

X Genesis is a startup studio uniquely focused on helping experienced entrepreneurs launch ventures at the intersection of impact and ROI. We surround our entrepreneurs with a powerful catalytic community composed of subject matter experts and startup specialists to vastly accelerate their learning process as they explore and pursue new opportunities in health, water, climate, learning, work, and beyond. We’re building a team of inspired, imaginative, and skilled individuals to join us on the journey.


OUR VISION AND VALUES

Our shared values provide the foundation for the value we create in the world, and underpin our vision of empowering entrepreneurs to tackle the world’s biggest problems. Our values include staying connected to the meaning and beauty in what we do, listening first and admitting what we don’t yet know, and welcoming diverse perspectives and possibilities. The current startup, venture capital, and early stage investment ecosystem currently leaves many minorities — including people of color, women and LGBTQ people — largely excluded. These communities are a vital aspect of the work we do, both in terms of those we serve and the team we are building. While we welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and identities, we strongly encourage application submissions from members of underrepresented and marginalized groups and communities.

The following are our company’s core values:

  1. Open Heart, Open Mind: We bring kindness and compassion to everything we do, and welcome new people, new ideas, and new possibilities, however unfamiliar. 
  2. Find Creative Flow: We nurture creativity by crafting an environment that encourages us to tap into flow states and do our best work. 
  3. Communicate Candidly: We communicate clearly and openly about the good, the bad, and everything in between. 
  4. Listen and Learn: We understand each other and the world by listening first, asking questions, and admitting what we don’t yet know.  
  5. Move Fast and Slow: We move with appropriate and intentional velocity, and make deliberate choices about when to speed up and when to slow down. 
  6. Leave a Trail of Order: We leave everything better than we found it, and create systems and processes to make life easier for those who follow us. 
  7. Know Your “Why”: We stay connected to the meaning and beauty in what we do, and are always working toward the bigger vision. 
  8. Use Your Superpowers: We play to our own and each others’ strengths, and design our roles to maximize our unique capabilities. 
  9. Create Joy and Playfulness: We create moments of delight and silliness in our day-to-day, and know how to take ourselves less-than-seriously. 
  10. Health and Family First: We recognize that some things are more important than work, and support each other to take care of ourselves and the people we love.
