Our Vision

Collaborative Global Networks


Innovation and Entrepreneurship Exchanges was founded to harness the power of smart, ambitious, and motivated young people and using it to tackle some of the world's greatest and most pressing issues. 

Our program is the first of its kind in the world. Innovation Exchanges International was founded to help multiply the abilities of young people across the globe to create change. Youth around the globe aren’t just future innovators; they are already pioneers of today. Our mission is to help bring them together to solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.

When talking to young people, it became clear to us that there was a huge gap in the market.

Young people by nature are curious and driven, and have a desire to explore the world, but the opportunities to experience the world have stayed the same for decades. One can either spend thousands of dollars on a service trip, spend time as a regular tourist, or do a traditional exchange. 

These opportunities were all rooted in a traditional mindset, and these programs weren't adapting to our evolving world. That's why we decided to create Innovation Exchanges International; to help offer a one-of-a-kind experience that brings together ambitious and motivated young people and helps them to tackle the world's greatest challenges.
