WHO WE ARE
AxisU is an EdTech company that specializes in helping employers design and implement self-managed apprenticeship programs.
We do this by curating curriculum, partnering with subject matter experts and instructional designers to develop apprenticeship programs in alignment with the Department of Labor standards.
AxisU provides employers with a branded online learning platform with approved related training instruction as well as on the job training materials for the apprentice and mentor.
Our goal is to help the 40M+ Americans who do not have access to traditional routes of education by creating opportunities for them to gain the skills they need and start a career through an apprenticeship. We hope to expand apprenticeships across the country and beyond the trades that they’re traditionally associated with, opening more doors for underserved populations to earn and learn.

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 that helped 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 & 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.
