X Genesis is a startup studio that helps entrepreneurs create scalable ventures that drive positive social and global change while delivering exceptional financial returns. We give our investors the opportunity to participate in a portfolio of ventures at a heavy discount to later funding rounds by engaging experienced entrepreneurs in the “pre-idea” phase – after they have had an exit but before they have decided what to do next. For our entrepreneurs, we massively accelerate the process of discovering and validating opportunities, and play a cofounder role as they launch their new venture.
Founded in 2015, X Genesis combines an obsession on supporting entrepreneur success with a singular focus on addressing wicked problems in climate, water, health, wellness, learning, and work. Over the last 6 years X Genesis has supported the launch of 12 ventures, with two exits.
