Jex's beginnings took place within the Northeastern University classrooms. What started off as an Entrepreneurship capstone project with a mission to improve student life, quickly gained momentum and earned us a place at the top, coming in first place in the popular vote for most investable idea.
Formerly known as GroupUs, the project set out to solve the problem of coordination and collaboration amongst students who, outside the classroom, are essentially strangers. We wanted to solve all the inconveniences of coordinating a team of peers whose only common connection is the group project at hand. With the help of modern collaborative tools, the existence of Learning Management Systems, and a great deal of organizational behavior research we realized that Jex's mission was a real possibility, and an excellent solution to a very real problem.
