Accelerating the Next — Not just a tagline, it is our reason for being.

From our Founder, and Executive Chairman – Shaunt M. Sarkissian

The focus for any startup founder and entrepreneur is to innovate, create, and succeed in their mission. To become “the Next” multibillion-dollar company, to change the world by impacting industries – and creating new ones – while adding value to everyone across the board, is the mission of our companies, and accelerating that mission is ours.

When we founded X Co, it was a vision of accelerating another “Next” – the next regional technology powerhouse of Nevada 2.0. From Reno to Las Vegas, Nevada is in a rapid stage of accelerated growth. By creating X Co Reno and X Co Las Vegas, we have created two state of the art locations where leading-edge global startups (not just the large, multinationals relocating here) can take advantage of the the Great Migration, and they can found their companies in emerging regions with all of the components to ensure their success. 

We judge our success by the success of our companies. You are the mission, and you are the metric. And we will arm you with key components you need to accelerate towards your inevitable success.
