Our Story

When student-athletes Cody Ferraro and Max Wessell met freshmen year they bonded over a shared affinity for competition. Their partnership stuck and continues as co-founders of InXAthlete.

While playing lacrosse his senior year, Cody tore his ACL and sat out the season. After injuring his wrist during his redshirt senior year Cody had a wake-up moment during his struggle to looking for jobs, while being a student-athlete. Ferraro came to Wessell with this struggle and that gave birth to the idea for a platform that connected student-athletes with employers.

Cody and Max spent the next years of college conducting market research and talking to companies nationwide, to see if there was a market for student-athletes in the professional world. They both came back with the answer of a resounding Yes!

Companies want to hire student-athletes and student-athletes are looking for their next team after graduation.
