Our founding partners have known each other for nearly 20 years and worked with each other at different points in their careers before forming SX2. So far, all of the SX2 team are personally and professionally known to one of more of the founders.

We are at a certain point in our lives where we want to enjoy what we do and the people we work with. We want to learn from new experiences and also pass on what we have learned to others. Our culture of collaboration and mutual respect is very important to us. Generally, we believe that happiness deserves more prominence in the corporate world.
