Enable growth.

That’s the function of venture capital and private equity investing, in a nutshell. In a course covering VC and PE (as they’re known in the industry), you’ll learn how to analyze and evaluate potential investments, conduct the various steps in the investment process, and how investment exit strategies are developed and implemented. This is the ideal skill set for those looking to shape the future. What can we say? Money talks.

"Through my learnings at iX, I believe that I can begin to further develop my entrepreneurial mindset in order to be effective in finance. I couldn’t imagine finding an opportunity that combines the aspects of learning as well as iXperience, and in the end, I am thankful for the team who made it all possible."

Venture philanthropy

Example project you may work on

Your client is a large global philanthropy. They have traditionally achieved social impact through writing cheque donations to non-profit organisations in the education sector. They are looking to change their model to achieve both financial returns as well as social impact in order to achieve long-term financial sustainability for their fund. They therefore want to base their new model of investment on the Venture Capital & Private Equity model - and thereby become a ‘Venture Philanthropist’.

"iXperience was a one-of-a-kind learning immersion. I gained experience and knowledge in ways I never had before. I can now say that I have incredible new skills and have used what I learned to make an impact at a startup company in Cape Town."

Thoughts
from our alumni.

Zachary Hoexter
Columbia University, Class of 2023

The iX programs cover the exact combination of learning and experience that is not offered in a traditional college classroom until upperclassman years. If you are interested in finance, this is the perfect and only opportunity as an underclassman to learn new skills and apply those at real financial services companies or projects.

Annie Li
Boston College , Class of 2023

iX helped me to understand and gain the skills that are required to enter the financial industry. Beyond just the skills, with the incredible teaching team who was always there whenever we needed help, I learned more about myself too.

Sarah McEachern
Middlebury College, Class of 2021

iX was a great experience coming from a liberal arts background to get into the more technical aspects of finance that I can’t learn at school. The program was excellent in helping me fill gaps as well as prepare me for a future career in the finance industry.

Tuition and financial aid.

Since 2014, iX has dispersed more than $2 million in financial aid to enable access to our programs.
