Disturb the Universe

Exosphere is a learning and problem solving community making technology more approachable, affordable and inclusive to all kind of people through education and entrepreneurship.

OUR STORY

In 2012, Exosphere was founded to build the educational institution of the future, one that facilitates lifelong learning and mixes the highly theoretical with the extremely practical, all while focused on the individual learner as a whole.

We chose to do this from the ground up, rather than from the top down as most educational institutions are built.

We bootstrapped our way from running entrepreneurship boot camps to our current transdisciplinary science, technology, & entrepreneurship programs and within the next two years, we will be a fully accredited university at the spear-tip of the world’s revolution in education.

CORE PHILOSOPHY

We are united by a set of common values and philosophies pushing the boundaries of research, challenging established dogmas, and bringing people together to solve the problems of the world.

Human Centered

Human Centered approach

Like playwriter Arthur Miller said "Man must shape his tools lest they shape him." We believe that we must tackle technology with humanity at its core, and not the other way around.

Genuine Community

A worldwide support network that encourages people to take risks and pursue their passions with the confidence that if they fall, somebody will be there to help them get back up.

Transdisciplinary method

We aspire to a future where sciences, humanities, and creative fields are accessible to all people and connected in a way that they can collaborate and enhance each other’s potential.

Cutting Edge

We are an edgy group of people willing to venture into the still unproven. We strive to be at the frontlines of all advances of technology, human interaction, and education, and bring them to you.
