Our founders Yoseph Ukbazghi and Wilson Kubwayo, were inducted into the Portland Business Journal class of 2020 forty under 40. We want to thank everyone who has supported us throughout this journey as Simple X has morphed and shifted since inception. In 2018, Trailblazers DJ, David ‘OG ONE’ Jackson, heard our vision and decided to amplify our message. Two years later we have reached thousands of individuals, collaborated with Portland’s top leaders and executives and are soon launching our e-learning platform.


Where there is opportunity, there comes responsibility. As we continue to bridge the gap between black professionals and the workplace, providing the highest quality of service is our top priority. If you would like to work with us, learn more at www.simpleX.work
