What others are saying

It’s amazing being exposed to so many people who’ve thought deeply about every aspect of running a business.

Luke Gibson, COO, Playmint

“CSX is probably the only time you’ll have in your company’s lifetime to focus so intensely on every single component of your business — to pull it apart, analyze it, and then accelerate its growth in a confined period of time.”

Aleksija Vujicic, Founder & CEO, Tata Bazaar

“The structure of the program — getting the introduction to different core elements of how to build the right kind of business — has been transformational to how we think about the early stages of growing.”

Lisa Grimm, Co-founder, Roux

“The energy itself cannot be replicated. You know that somebody is going to take off and they’re building an iconic, huge brand or a huge platform. And it could be us, it could be yourself.”
