The x.1 foundation evolved from the METAXA XEX FUND. This private effort aimed to identify and empower High Potentials in the society in order to achieve the SDG 11,12,16 and 17 was funded by Nikolaus Metaxa-Schwarten in memory of his grandfather -- the Greek engineer and Mayor of Panagitsa, Pellas, the late Nikolaos Metaxa († 1968)

After presenting the PlasticPlug Project to LGUs and potential partners it turned out that legal documents like MOAs could only be signed by a legal entity. Hence we raised 1 Mio. PHP and set up the x.1 foundation inc..
Unfortunately due to COVID the papers never arrived and we could not reach SEC. Only in October we got the confirmation that the foundation was actually incorporated in April 2020.
