Connecting Growth Myndsets!

While working in Student Affairs at Northern Illinois University in the Department of Student Involvement & Leadership Development, Excell Lewis analyzed the impact that social network platforms had on adult learner outcomes. His research inspired him to form XL Academics(XLA) in 2006 . XLA served to connect growth myndsets through learner engagement with peer, alumni, and career mentors.

While leading XLA, a new methodology in Ed-Tech emerged in 2012 entitled Learning Relationship Management (LRM). LRM was first mentioned in a book entitled Game Changers. There reference to LRM and its application to the evolution of education sparked a movement throughout Ed-Tech companies across the country!

Our vision is to be the leading innovator and social entrepreneur in the ED-TECH ECOSYSTEM!

Recognizing the changing trends in industry and the paradigm shift to outcomes based education, Mr. Lewis realized the need to rebrand the company and redesign XLA's complete product offerings. The conscious decision was made to focus on effective ways to scale its offerings to include asset based personalized learning in a trackable supportive environment. This detailed process lead to the birth of Mynd Match, Inc.
