We are Xebec
Hi, my name is Alex Levine and I am the CEO and Co-Founder of Xebec. We are stoked to have you here. We created this page to tell the story of how Xebec went from an idea to reality. Follow along - we hope you enjoy!
The way in which professionals work is changing. 10 Years ago the traditional workplace consisted of offices, full of a single company’s employees all working together from the same physical location. This is no longer the case. The modern workplace is now mobile, with over 60 million remote workers in the US alone. It is our mission at Xebec to equip today’s professionals to be successful in the modern mobile workplace.
We want you to feel empowered as a modern tech consumer and a modern professional with a mobile lifestyle. Whether you're a software developer, accountant, management consultant, photographer, insurance underwriter, creator, financial analyst, salesperson, writer, marketer - the list goes on… we recognize that work and life is more transient these days and productivity should still accompany that.
We are a company founded by modern professionals building a brand for modern professionals. Our focus is on building a mobile work centric brand. When you are using a Xebec product you become the modern professional who lets their life dictate their work, and not vice-versa. The owner of Xebec products is a liberated professional who can live their fullest life without sacrificing their professional ambitions.
Welcome to today's workplace. Welcome to Xebec.
After getting my engineering degree from The University of Texas, I began a career in Digital Consulting. As a consultant, I was required to travel to client sites across the country on a weekly basis. As anyone who regularly travels for work knows, getting work done at the client site can be very difficult. Between the constant barrage of questions and endless meetings, I spent more time going from conference room to conference room, than getting productive work done. The reason behind the struggle was that I lacked the screen real estate I’d come to rely on in my home office and needed monitors for my laptop.
I tried standalone monitors, but they took too much time to setup and lacked the portability to go from room to room. I tried USB monitors, but they required additional desk space that I didn't have. I felt there must be a better solution. So, in February of 2017, I went to work designing and building a prototype that would:
Allow me to have access to my monitors when and where I needed them
Include a removable mount that I could affix to my work laptop seamlessly - without causing any damage
Be compact and easy to travel with
Require zero additional work space, given the often crammed, shared desks at the client site
This is the origin of Xebec.
Given our shared entrepreneurial spirit and experience working on the go, I knew this was something my co-founder, Trevor, would also be excited about. After revealing the prototype to him, we determined that we were both compelled to solve this shared problem, and we decided to pursue it further. This initiated 18 months of market research, vendor outreach, engineering, design, and countless prototypes. Finally, in 2019, we arrived at the Tri-Screen that exists today.
Our tag line and motto at Xebec is "Free Yourself." Free Yourself from the confines of a single, small screen. Free Yourself from power outlets and bulky equipment. Free Yourself from the traditional "office" and work where you want.
In this digital age, we are fortunate to have access to knowledge and information from virtually anywhere. The Xebec Tri-Screen was created to extend that freedom to your remote workstation. We are proud to introduce you to your laptop's new favorite companion.
