Stay connected to iX. Learn skills. Earn money. Have impact.

My vision is for iX to be a lifelong learning company, where our alumni can give back into our growing education ecosystem and earn money after they've completed a program.

The Business Development program is that vision in action: a program where past iX students can work with us during the school year to develop iX's presence on their campus. It's an awesome opportunity that has accelerated the careers of so many alumni, while also enabling iX to grow.
