COMPANY X

You are a student, or you’ve got a great idea for a student-centric business, and you have thought up the next big thing. We want to help you with it. Company X is an early stage investment company comprised of entrepreneurs and investment professionals who are dedicated to helping students start and grow their businesses into tomorrow’s leading companies. Unlike traditional incubator platforms, you can contact Company X and work with us year round – no set time schedule, no set applications – because that is just how real world business works.

We also offer a 10 week intensive summer program that is designed to fit in with your studies. Come to New York, fine tune your business plans, and prepare to raise additional capital. Our vision is to have a portfolio of companies and entrepreneurs that work side by side, collaborate, get inspired and change the world.

We’re ready to support you with our capital, experience, access, workspace and for those that are part of our summer program, housing. It’s time to put your ideas to work.

OUR SPACE

SCHEDULE

Company X generally does not live by a schedule. When you have an idea, we want to hear about it. But we’ve also developed a summer program specifically designed to work around your studies. Here’s what you need to know:

SUMMER PROGRAM 2014

Thanks to the hundreds of applicants that applied to the Company X summer program. As always it was a very difficult decision making process. We have selected our teams and the application process is now closed. Please check back soon for our updated schedule.

faq

  • How do I apply to Company X?

    It is easy to apply to Company X through our website, and the process is straightforward. We are interested in your business idea, and we are interested in you, because we’re going to be working closely with you. Inspire us. Show us what you can do.

  • What types of companies do you work with?

    Company X is interested in businesses founded by student entrepreneurs as well as businesses with students as their target demographic.

  • Can an individual apply or does it have to be a team?

    Individuals or teams can apply. We see hundreds of ideas and have the opportunity to meet some really talented entrepreneurs. One of the things that we can help you with is finding a team to bring your idea to life.

  • Do I have to be at the office for the entire summer program?

    If you are accepted into our summer program, yes. You cannot imagine the creative energy you will benefit from just being in a room full of other exciting and talented entrepreneurs working with each other, brainstorming together and cross-pollenating ideas and relationships. It also allows you to take full advantage of all of all of the networking opportunities we offer.

  • Where do I live and work with Company X?

    Our co-working office is located at 520 Eighth Avenue (between 36th and 37th Street), just blocks from Madison Square Garden. Living accommodations vary and you will be happy!

  • What services does Company X provide?

    Company X provides its entrepreneurs a co-working office space with similarly situated entrepreneurs, industry-specific advisors, access to service providers and access to additional funding. For student entrepreneurs that are accepted into our summer program, we also offer housing, as well as travel and entertainment expenses.

  • What happens when I raise additional capital?

    At Company X, we see funding as just another step in the company’s life cycle, not as a chance to clear space for the next round of other companies. If you are a student and raise additional capital, it is up to you to decide whether or not to take it or go back to school.

X MANAGEMENT

Company X is a subsidiary of Campus Evolution which, through its Campus Evolution Villages brand, owns and manages student housing assets across the country. It was through speaking to our residents on a regular basis that we realized there was a tremendous need for a campus-centric investment company. While students spoke to us passionately about what seemed to be brilliant ideas, they all generally lacked funding and access. UNTIL NOW.
