About Us:

Axiom Zen is an idea catalyst: part startup accelerator, part design studio, part engineering foundry. We launch iconic products, brands, and companies in partnership with the world's leading innovators.

We provide full health, life and AD&D insurance as well as premium vision, dental, and extended health care benefits. We are very keen on supporting growth, and will provide financial support for courses, seminars, certification, and degree programs for long-term team members. The team receives monthly credits for health and wellness expenses as well as additional bonuses as the company achieves milestones.
