You are the Founder of an innovative enterprise with large growth potential and important societal impact. You are commercializing your product or service, have first few millions in revenues, international business and you're seeking a unique growth-acceleration program.

SCALEUPNATION

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. Learn more about the curriculum here.

 

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. Contact us to find out if you would be “investment ready” for ScaleUpNation.

SCALEUPNATION PROGRAMS

Runway Program

4 X 1.5-day

Workshops

The Runway Program is where it all starts. Here, we provide you with key insights on how to successfully scale. It also allows us to get to know you better and to determine whether you are suited and prepared for the Flight Program. It also enables you to build peer relationships with other scale-up founders in the program.

 

If your enterprise has major scale-up potential, if you fit our scope, and if you are committed to double down on your leadership development, we provide the support in our program to maximize your chance of success. The Runway Program consists of four intense 1.5-day workshops. We promise there will be no lectures, no class assignments, but a fully interactive experience.

Flight Program

3 years

Support

The Runway Program serves as a selection funnel for the Flight Program. 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.

ScaleUpLab

ScaleUpLab is our research arm and knowledge base, responsible for developing and validating our research on scaling and supporting our support programs. Read “ScaleUp: The Experience Game”, our foundational report. We collaborate with consultancies and universities, and most importantly with practitioners; a few thousand entrepreneurs around the world that want to build their business to scale in terms of societal impact and attractive returns.

Corporate ScaleUp

We work with those corporates that are involved in scaling innovative new business – those corporates that are committed to growth, innovation, entrepreneurship and societal impact (so only those companies we would aspire to work at, as well as for). We do not consult. Instead we co-create an innovation vision, support talent and skill development and provide appropriate structures and mechanisms. Contact us if you want to know more.
