Project X-ITE Supports Student Entrepreneurs

Project X-ITE’s mission is to ignite the innovator’s mindset and future-proof our students through programming that supports student entrepreneurs.

At Project X-ITE, we believe that the only constant is change, and that change creates opportunity. So, we help students cultivate an Innovator’s Mindset, prepare them to add value in any environment, and empower them to launch creative solutions. Because when we do, we ignite a community of thinkers and doers with the skills to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Student Stories

“If you are passionate and driven enough about an idea and making something happen, and you believe you can do it, you should. There is no better way to learn than to DO

– Lauren Barnes, OneKindCup, CEO, Management ’22

“Cultivo exists because of Project X-ITE. Our founding team met through X-ITE, did six-figures in revenue from DU’s network, and learned skills that we will never forget with the support of so many.”

– Scott Romano, Cultivo Media, CEO, International Business & Economics ’20

Half of us live together, sometimes we survive off of cereal and pizza rolls, and we’re burning the stick at both ends, BUT we are so excited to be doing what we love.
