Our Mission

Project X-ITE’s mission is to ignite the innovator’s mindset and future-proof our students through programming that supports student ventures, careers in innovation, and experiential learning.

We connect. We collaborate. We engage.

You revolutionize.

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.
