Curriculum

How is the program designed?

ScaleUpNation is a unique growth-acceleration program for innovative enterprises with large growth potential and important societal impact. We focus on those young companies that have a commercialized product or service, first couple of million revenues, international business and seasoned founder teams.

 

They get access to the best entrepreneurial experience and support and to growth financing.  ScaleUpNation support focuses on the entrepreneur as least as much as on the enterprise, as we know that the quality and effectiveness of the leadership team is the most important scale-up success factor.

ScaleUpNation initially focuses on Netherlands-based enterprises. We are selecting about 100 enterprises to support and from this about 20 for the most intensive partnership.  Any collaboration includes an extensive assessment, formal agreements on shared objectives and results, and a fitting reward-sharing structure. Do contact us to find out if you would be “investment ready” for ScaleUpNation.

 

The added value of ScaleUpNation is more intensive, individually tailored support to significantly enhance the likelihood of scale-ups realizing growth potential. This sets the program apart from many start-up accelerators, incubators and other growth support programs.

Runway Program

Workshops

The Runway Program is where it all starts. Here, you will gain key insights on how to successfully scale and build peer relationships with other scale-up founders in the program. The Runway Program serves as a selection funnel for the Main Program.

Main Program

Support

Specific support will be designed around individual venture needs, but think of 5 times the support you would get from a typical VC. This includes extensive assessment that leads to formal agreements on objectives and results, with a fitting reward structure. Progress and results will be monitored closely.
