Academi is an American private military company, founded in 1997 by Erik Prince. Formerly known as Blackwater, the company was renamed Xe Services in 2009, and "Academi" in 2011. The company was purchased in late 2010 by a group of private investors who changed the name to Academi and instituted a board of directors and new senior management. Prince retained the rights to the name Blackwater and has no affiliation with Academi. The company received widespread publicity in 2007, when a group of its employees killed 17 Iraqi civilians and injured 20 in Nisour Square, Baghdad.
