X ( Formerly Google X – A Subsidiary of Alphabet Inc.) is a Moonshot Factory. We look for the intersection of a big problem, a radical solution, and breakthrough technology. We start with a large problem in the world that if solved could improve the lives of millions or even billions of people. Then we propose a radical solution that sounds impossible today, almost like science fiction. Lastly, we look for a technology breakthrough that exists today; this gives us the necessary hope that the solution we’re looking for is possible, even if its final form is five to ten years away and obscured over the horizon.
We tackle ideas that have the riskiness and ambition of early-stage research and approach them with the focus and speed of a startup. Our goal is to develop and de-risk these early-stage ideas and turn them into proven technologies that make a real impact in the world.
X is a team of inventors and entrepreneurs from a wide variety of backgrounds. We’re makers, engineers, and scientists with deep technical expertise who’ve come to X to bring our creations out of the lab and into the real world. And we love the challenge of the seemingly impossible and the potential to have an impact on millions of people’s lives.
