The team at Hex have spent the last year or so working with Entelechy Academy, helping them to realise their goal of creating a unique platform for character-based self development.

Entelechy Academy: Obviously we're including the new Entelechy Academy app in our list! This unique app is all about improving yourself by focusing on the very thing that makes you, you; your character qualities. Start by rating your strengths and growth opportunities within the 54 character qualities listed, then ask those close to you to rate you as well. This, as well as some other magic, will give you a rounded picture of where you should focus your self improvement for the best results across all areas of your life.
