T represents team. When we engage with companies, we work side by side with management as one, integrated team, focused on enabling success.
M is the first letter of the Greek word Μαζί, which means together. At 2TmX Advisors, we tackle the needs of our clients together with our partners.
X stands for X-factor. Our companies are founded and run by sophisticated, passionate entrepreneurs; however, we are the X-factor that brings it all together to accelerate growth and opportunities.
