Happy 10th Birthday to CLX
We just turned 10. Double figures. Crack open the champagne!
We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings back in 2008, when the idea of CLX was first discussed around a kitchen table in Sweden by 6 renegades ready to take on the mobile messaging world. There were bumps along the way; scary times, good times and of course bad times, but you know what? We made it, and that’s something we’re going to shout about.
From the back room of an Afro-Caribbean travel agency in Stockholm, 6 pioneers held the vision to build a company – one that would grow to over 32 offices in 21+ countries, with more than 400 employees. It’s been one hell of a ride, and we’d like to share the journey with you through the eyes of the guys that saw it all first hand – our founders.
Keep your eyes peeled for our series of upcoming blogs. Based on interviews with all 6 founders, we’ll take you through the ups and downs of building a Nasdaq listed company in an economy where so many other companies fell by the wayside. If you’re feeling impatient, and can’t wait to find out how we got to where we are now, check out the CLX Timeline for a snapshot on how acquisitions, awards and product launches helped shape us into the company we are today.
