WELCOME TO HXOUSE

3D Triangle

HXOUSE is a next-generation incubator and accelerator that is at the forefront of fostering innovation and opportunity for creative entrepreneurs. We facilitate connections between talent and industry to build mutually beneficial relationships between future talent and current industry titans.

A not-for-profit venture established by La Mar Taylor, the creative director behind The Weeknd/XO brand.

Our mission is to empower young entrepreneurs with the tools, programming, mentorship, network, funds, and freedom they need to activate their talent and translate it into a sustainable career that promotes industry innovation.

Artscape Daniels Launchpad in collaboration with HXOUSE will be a hub for art and design entrepreneurship that will help artists eliminate barriers to reach their full creative potential. Creatives will have unprecedented accesses to the latest in film, media, graphics suites, in addition to a wide range of suites like 3-D printing prototyping, fashion/jewelery design. This model, the first of its kind globally will offer artists affordable access to tools of the trade and will act as a hothouse for creative production, collaboration, experimentation, play, and radical invention.
Artscape Daniels Launchpad is a $28.4 million 30,000 square-foot one-stop art and design entrepreneurship hub opening in 2018. This state-of-the-art multifaceted entrepreneurship center is designed to provide artists and designers from diverse disciplines with the tools, facilities, coaching, and support they need to thrive. ADL will open in October 2018 in Daniels City of the Arts.

The HXOUSE entrepreneurship courses will be offered at Launchpad for creative people building new culture and product. Upon opening in October 2018, Launchpad and HXOUSE will be an essential resource for artists as they build their business, hone their crafts and begin to look for programs, services, funding and collaboration opportunities on which to build their careers in the arts.
Educating is the cornerstone
of our foundation's success

HXOUSE will be partnering with OCAD University and George Brown to design and prototype an industry first real-world curriculum that will be accredited by our institutional partners. This will serve as the entry-point of a new joint HXOUSE Designated Program that will be available to all our future non-traditional students that will allow them to continue to pursue their career while still earning credits and not sacrificing their educational achievement in the process.

HXOUSE academic programming will give future students real world exposure in real- time.

"We came to the conclusion the system was broken and we didn't want to complain about it. We just wanted to reverse everything we were taught and change the game. Brand new ideas, new vision, leading the industry with cutting-edge innovation and not being led. We are building an untraditional non-profit model that will have an immediate ROI felt in several underserved creative communities, globally."
