IBEA

When people hear IBEA for the first time, the question that always comes to mind is “does IBEA stand for anything?” To answer the question, we must go back to the beginning where it all started. When we first started IBEA, we were young college students (techies, hustlers, designers) with a burning desire to use our expertise/skills to help the people in our community and those around world. We strongly believed each of us had the power to change the world, and that was our calling.

In those early days we would meet at our campus library and discuss ideas to further advance our communities with our capabilities.

In reality, our early meetings we’re informal with little guidance, we didn’t know what we were doing, but we did know why we were doing it. This helped us continue working with IBEA over the course of the years. After three years from the founding of IBEA, we’ve been able to touch more than 1000’s lives (ranging from students, people who are homeless, children at our local hospitals, and those living in poverty.)  

The name IBEA came from a simple equation [Ideas (+) Big = IBEA]. Everytime people have a big idea, we like to say that’s an IBEA. The motto we created back then was “Innovation with a Global Purpose.” And up till this day, our members still hold this belief. 

Core Values

Exploration

Exploration

We’re dreamers, tech savvy visionaries driven by a need for exploration. Our mission lies in using exploration to develop new research, projects, and technologies that will have a positive impact in our communities and the world.

Creativity

Creativity

We do not fear being wrong or failing for trying something new. We push against the boundaries and always question the status quo. As children we played in sandboxes, now as adult the world has become our new sandbox.

Agile

Agile

Fail fast, fail often, get up and try a different approach. Due to our DNA encoded need for exploration and creativity there are many times when we have to shift our plans quickly. Our team members embrace these quick changes and iterations, because each iteration get us closer to our vision.

Diversity

Diversity

We view the world as our home, and everyone in it is our brothers and sisters. We welcome all ideas and strongly encourage the input of everyone around the world.

Collaboration

In every research, project, and technology we take on; collaboration is a must. We are a whole, with everyone bring an important piece to the puzzle. Its also fun to work others!

Fun

Fun

In everything we do we try to have fun. We’re bored of structures and boundaries. We love to have fun so break the rules. (*this doesn’t mean the law) We refer to the way we’ve been programmed to think. We’re all good citizens of the world.

Playground

Playground

The world is our playground, through our DNA encoded need for exploration and creativity, along with our agile capabilities, and an open mind to work with all; one day we will realize our vision. Until then we’ll just have fun, creating and building for our communities.
