What makes HEX Ed different?

We believe in doing things we’re passionate about.

When we’re doing things we don’t want to do, we’re not doing our best. So our goal is to stick to the stuff we’re passionate about. No taking on work that doesn’t thrill us.
Building features that actually make a difference
Letting employees take active ownership over their work
No burn-out from back-breaking work

Communicate Strong relationships are built on communication.

We don’t leave things unsaid. Because unsaid is often just another word for misunderstood. We over-communicate so everyone stays on the same page.
Letting everyone hold the mic
Honest, open communication
Even about the hard things

People first, profits later Building an environment people like working in.

By honest, we don’t mean harsh. We put kindness and empathy at the centre of our business, so we, our employees and our customers enjoy working together.
Unlimited paid leaves
Health insurance for all
Flexible work hours

Stay fresh Take action. Do unique, fun things.

We’ll admit: we’re not over-thinkers. We believe in action. We want to make things. Fast. We’re always about innovation.
Try new things
Even if that means failing a bit
Get to execution faster

Keep your feet on the ground Be confident, but down-to-earth.

As our lord and saviour Kendrick Lamar says, sit down, be humble. We don’t want to be another Valley tech bro (no offense). We want to remember our roots.
Being an active listener

What our hexies are saying

It all clicked when I found an entrepreneurship program like HEX.
This was a canvas where I could create the change I wanted to see in the world. HEX is really great at delivering the content in new and exciting ways.
CEO, Future Minds
The program was very solid.
I learned a lot about how best to present myself and my idea. The program really helped me cement my idea and taught me a lot about presentation skills, which is something I'll absolutely use in the future.
A program like no other!
Every school and student should definitely go through this. An opportunity for hands-on learning, growth and gaining insights into entrepreneurship.

These things cannot be learnt from books!
Thank you so much for experience that I will treasure for life.
This has been an experience I do not regret! Despite being anxious about coming in with a minimal business background I think I was able to gain so much more.
I don’t need to wait to make my impact in the chosen space.
Out of the entrepreneurial extracurriculars I’ve taken, HEX was the first arena that enabled me to explore my own idea. Often, I’d do team based work or work on someone’s case idea.
Would recommend this course to anyone and everyone.
The program is just so useful and everyone should do it regardless of if you are an aspiring entrepreneur or not. It makes you look at things differently and consider alternatives to the norm.

You ready? Get in today.

Join the HEX revolution! This is a sign to accelerate your next move!

Frequently asked questions

Do not worry, here are some questions we always get for our program.

How much does HEX Career Accelerator Program cost?

The HEX Career Accelerator program costs AUD $990 per learner. However, if you wish to purchase HEX Career Accelerator program in bulk you are eligible for an exclusive discount per learner. Get in touch with us to learn more.

Are there any additional funding opportunities for HEX Ed program?

We have over $1 million AUD in funding from various universities who are able to sponsor or subsidise your program cost.

What are the assessments like?

We don't believe in exams, so assessments (which we call checkpoints) have been designed to be practical so we can equip you with the right mindset, skillset, and toolset!

Our checkpoints, regardless of the unit,  can range from reflective or research focussed (i.e. asking you a series of questions so you can explore your relationship/attitude/behavior with money and set some financial goals), and others will be practical (i.e. creating a business plan or completing a business case project).

Each checkpoint will be graded by our team of assessors, so you will get feedback as you progress through the course. Checkpoints are a hurdle requirement and are graded in P/F. You will be required to submit all checkpoints within the program dates in order to receive your credit (That's about 5-6 checkpoints in 6 weeks).

Can I receive academic credit for the HEX Ed program?

HEX Ed can come with a Certificate of Completion issued by an accredited university. HEX Career Accelerator, however, does not include this School of Record certificate. If you wish to obtain one, you can do so for an addition cost of $250 AUD.

This certificate is recognised by most universities for credit equivalency. However, this isn’t guaranteed, and you’ll need to check with your own university about how much credit you can get and for which subjects. We recommend you get in touch with our team at hello@startwithhex.com, who will be able to help you navigate this with your course advisor.

The dates don't suit me. What do I do? 

This can happen! If you have any suggestions of when is a better time for you and why, let us know at hello@startwithhex.com.

What if I cannot finish the HEX Ed program within 6 weeks?

That's the beauty of HEX Ed, you will not get left behind! We are moving as one unit. We've got you.

Stay in the HEXiverse!
