As a native of Liberia who studied abroad for both secondary and post-secondary schooling, Jaydee Tarpeh developed a keen sense of how to make the international education experience great.
He and his fellow UWindsor grad Nyasha Kapfumvuti are putting that knowledge to work as the founders of Xenia Education, creating immersive simulations to develop non-academic skills.
The company is one of seven startups participating in weekly webinars and mentoring sessions through the RBC EPIC Founders program.
Tarpeh made the most of his time at the University, working as resident assistant, starting a club, and serving a term as president of the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance.
“I founded Xenia to transform my experiences and knowledge into a packaged solution for other international students,” he says.
Kapfumvuti adds technical expertise, with a background in computer engineering and instructional design.
