Jade Hardy

Director, Finance & Accounting

Jade supports the Foundation through financial planning, reporting, and analysis of all programs at XPRIZE.

Jade has been with XPRIZE for over 6 years. She started with a 3-day assignment organizing data in Excel after which another project was available, and the rest is history. Throughout her time at XPRIZE, she has had the opportunity to support multiple activities from accounting to the designing of competitions through Visioneering. These cross-functional experiences have strengthened her knowledge and understanding of the Foundation, which allows for more strategic recording and analysis of financial activities. 

Jade graduated magna cum laude from the University of Houston – Clear Lake with a BS in Accounting. She enjoys exploring with her son, Phoenix, and performing as an NBA dancer for the Houston Rockets.
