As you may have noticed, we have a new look… again!
In March we had released this blog post introducing our new look and logo along with a brief update on the status of Xccelerate as you knew it.
We are here today to introduce the next evolution of our brand, from A to X.
A lot has happened since our first Full-Time Immersive Software Engineering Bootcamp in February 2017. We’ve educated over 500 students, provided bespoke training for enterprises of all sizes, expanded our course offerings, held dozens of interactive workshops and brought together amazing speakers and partners for massive panel events here in Hong Kong.
Amidst all of this, we’ve had to adapt to fast-paced change; adapt to the needs of our students, the need for new spaces to teach and operate, the need to create more engaging content and find more career opportunities for our graduates.
When we set out to build Xccelerate as it was, we knew there was an opportunity to change lives by helping Hong Kong overcome the impending skilled labor shortage. We knew 800 million jobs would be automated by 2030 and that there was a need for someone to step in and begin to address these issues. What we didn’t know was just how big this opportunity would be, so fast.
In order to accomodate a bigger vision, we have rebranded to Xccelerate.
Under Xccelerate we intend to double-down on our focus on addressing the tech talent shortage in Hong Kong, creating the best possible practical hands-on learning experience for career movers and improvers alike with a new campus experience to come as well as fresh curriculum updates and a well-rounded end to end experience.
The Xccelerate brand also provides us more flexibility when scaling as an organization. As much as we love the original name and brand, it’s not the easiest to trademark on a global scale!
So what changes can you expect in the short term? Here’s a quick breakdown:
-You’ll notice that our name and branding has completely changed. This will be reflected on all major channels moving forward, including our website domain -We’ll be sharing more about our new campus in the coming months -An expanded lineup of workshop offerings
We are all in when it comes time to building the best possible educational experience that we can. While we know that there will always be options when it comes to education, whether it means committing to post-graduate programs, self-study and online courses or traditional part-time learning platforms we believe that there is room for an accessible, community based experiential learning platform that makes upgrading your skills, and thus, your career more exciting than ever.
