It's difficult to put into words the impact that the people at GrowthX Academy have had on my personal and professional life.
"People first" is not just a core value at GrowthX, it is the foundation for everything they do. When you join the Academy you join a rapidly growing family of like minded individuals who are passionate about helping others and sharing knowledge.
The amount I have grown in my professional and personal life has been exponential. I am so thankful for making the investment in myself and joining the GrowthX family.
As someone taking part in the inaugural sales & biz dev cohort I can tell you that we are on our 7th week (out of 12) and it’s been INTENSE! Since there are no official GrowthX Academy (GXA) Alumni (yet) I can give you some insight.
My situation is a bit different than the others in my cohort since I have been IN Tech Sales for the past 2 years in Silicon Valley (SDR, AE, & CSM work). My focus for joining the academy was to broaden my experiences and have something to set me apart from everyone that I am competing with for work in Silicon Valley.
As someone who has done a lot out here and feels comfortable with the startup world, I still felt as though I was being held back, or holding myself back. When I made the choice to join GXA it was to be able to focus more deeply on sales strategies and how to approach things the right way. I've learned a lot in the first 4 weeks and the 5th week was a bit of a breather for us before we got into our 6-week internships with REAL companies.
I can say that I now understand more about taking a product to market than I think I would have on my own. Having the guidance of the instructors and everyone associated with the academy has really helped me to feel confident in what I know and how to execute on it. I also feel validated for the way that I view sales as a relationship and not a transaction, while also learning new strategies to close deals, lead a team, and more.
I will say that the first version of this course has been an adventure. You will be 100% submerged into the start-up world and the realm of having to always be flexible yet focused on your end goal. I will say that I alredy have a job offer that I would not be able to confidently accept without having gone through this program and having the team as my resource moving forward.
GrowthX Academy is a 12 week full immersion program that attracts individuals that desire to gain the skills required to successfully take ideas to market. This is THE place to be if you want to exponentially increase your opportunity and fit in the start-up industry…hence the “x”. The content is specific and intricate. You are guaranteed to gain a cutting edge perspective on efficiently getting to the truth for any company’s product-market fit. This is special op’s for the startup industry.
