Our experienced mentors help our students every step of the way to succeed and create win-win situations.

Zurixx was founded on the principle that traditional education no longer serves the masses. We wanted to meet people where they are, with the education and training they need, when they need it. By providing the highest level education in a disruptive format, we are reaching more students than we ever thought possible.
Since our inception, we’ve had the privilege of working with hundreds of thousands of dedicated students. Along the way, we’ve managed to pick up a few bragging rights. We have been recognized by Great Place to Work and the Salt Lake Tribune’s Top Workplaces every year since 2016. In 2018, we earned the #1 spot on the Entrepreneur.com list of Top Company Cultures, and I [Jim Carlson] was recognized as CEO of the Year by Utah Business Magazine.

Where does Zurixx see itself in the long run and/or what are its future goals?
Our long term plan and goals are centered around expanding the disruptive education we offer with relentless focus on quality.
What is the dynamic factor that makes Zurixx different from its competitors?
Many people have great ideas, but they don’t seize opportunities or take action. At Zurixx, we aren’t afraid to try new things. Because we asked ourselves, ‘Why not us?’ we took chances and now train entrepreneurs how to be successful business people.

About the Leader
Zurixx’s reputation, growth, and success is directly reflective of Jim Carlson’s leadership and the direction he initially set for the company back in 2012. The company’s mission is focused on three main points: be a highly-rated educational program that creates financial freedom for students and their families; create a corporate culture where people feel respected and are given the chance to succeed; give back time and money to create meaningful charity engagements. Jim is continually refocusing on these three pillars. Zurixx has had hundreds of thousands of students receiving training with above-average industry satisfaction ratings. Its students’ success stories and the positive impact they have had on their lives is the reason why Zurixx works hard as it does.
Jim’s respect for employees shines through in all of the third-party recognitions the company has received. In a 2019 survey conducted by Great Place to Work, 99% of its surveyed employees agreed that management has a clear view of where the organization is going and how to get there.
One of Jim’s biggest pride points is Zurixx’s emphasis on giving back. The company has donated millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours to local charities and community organizations such as underfunded youth sports programs, equine therapy groups for children with disabilities, sex trafficking prevention organizations, community libraries, cancer research foundations, and more.
