The HEX Team
Hacker Exchange (HEX)

HEX exists to launch epic careers and unlock captive talent. We're creating a generation of leaders who take action to create the world they want to live in.

4000+ students have loved our seriously fun virtual programs, study abroad experiences and hackathon-style events. And they leave HEX with amazing confidence, skills and networks — as well as university accreditation.

In 2021, HEX is a lean, diverse Australian-based team working around the world and around the clock.

We’ve run 40+ programs to San Francisco, Singapore, Tel Aviv, and Melbourne – and we didn't slow down when the borders closed. 

In 2020, we launched award-winning virtual internships, challenges and cohort-based programs. We even expanded our partnerships globally, and started working with incredible high-school students.
