HXOUSE is a Toronto-based, globally focused think-center. Serving its community as an incubator and accelerator, it helps to foster innovation and opportunity for creative entrepreneurs.

HXOUSE embodies the practice of cross-disciplinary learning, anchored in the core belief that by thinking outside your discipline, you can learn how to evolve your craft. Rather than traditional education, HXOUSE seeks to empower through mentorship and communication, engaging the creative mind through journeys and frank discussions surrounding the process and growth across all creative sectors.

The goal of HXOUSE is to remedy the lack of attention currently offered to the creative arts and tech communities. Our mission is to always ensure that access to critical networks and opportunities needed to build sustainable, successful businesses are never hindered based on economic background or social class.


Toronto native Matthew Jehu Samuels, known professionally as Boi-1da, is an award winning record producer for a variety of artists and groups, most notably The Weeknd, Rihanna, Eminem, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Nas, Lana Del Rey and Kendrick Lamar.

"We came to the conclusion that 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."
