X0PA AI shapes the AI talent management structure of corporate and enterprise-level organisations, changing the way they think about growth: with talent and teamwork at the centre.

I was on GEIP from March to August 2020. I interned with a startup called X0PA Ai, which developed a platform to scale the recruitment process for companies. During my internship, I had the chance to work with colleagues from other X0PA offices in London and India.
Through the GEIP Startup Challenge I had a chance to further develop my business idea for TableTalk, a card game I developed with my team to help people facilitate conversations about the important questions in life. We pitched and secured a grant from The Sandbox. We went on Kickstarter to seek additional funding from backers. We received over $11,000 from the Kickstarter campaign, giving us the resources to move into card production!
