Christian Gray - Founder/CEO

AxisU was founded on a mission to make opportunity accessible.

I founded AxisU after 2 very influential experiences: working in the Iowa House of Representatives and working for a national nonprofit called Jobs for America’s graduates, which helps high school students bridge the gap between education and the workforce. 

 It was because of these experiences that I came to the realization that access to post secondary education and training is the biggest barrier to employment, and it’s the core cause behind why so many employers struggle to find qualified candidates. The numbers show that the people are there, they just don’t have access to obtain the skills your business needs. That’s why we started AxisU. We are on a mission to remove the cost of education and teach people the technical skills they need, and then, connect them to employers like you to employ them.
