Our Mission

Exponential Impact’s mission is simple: Give early-stage entrepreneurs focused on emerging technologies the best start humanly possible. We develop founders and startups by equipping them with resources and expertise, then strengthen their connections to create rich environments of innovation and collaboration.

Our Values

Our core values, called The Six Peaks Model, enrich all aspects of XI programming to deliver a holistic approach of supporting participants as leaders and as startup founders. They are: Story & Innovation, Awareness, Health & Wellness, Leadership & Culture, Operational Excellence, and Mentorship.



The seed-to-scale journey begins with the XI Accelerator Program for promising early-stage companies. For 14 weeks, work alongside other teams building companies with emerging technologies. Rigorous programming, workspace, and meaningful mentor connections are provided to build relationships and stronger businesses. Custom seed funding is negotiated at unique valuations for each team – $30,000 to $50,000.


The XI Amplify Program is for startups who have a product in the market or are about to release a product. Startups gain access to graduated workspace in an entrepreneurial environment, weekly check-ins with our staff, mentor and investor events, and discounted professional services that will help create a viable business. XI Amplify targets more advanced startups in the Pikes Peak region or ones willing to relocate to the area for the 6-month program, and this includes Accelerator Alumni.


Ascend is XI's final part of the seed-to-scale journey, and it prepares ventures for high growth and expansion with enhanced access to world-class resources. Many of the same perks and support services are offered to teams for this 12-month program. Companies at this stage are coached and prepared to raise $5 million or more of institutional venture capital or in the form of advanced industry grants.
The XI Ascend Program is coming soon.
