What is a scale up?

A scaleup is a successful startup company that plans to grow further. The OECD defines a scaleup as a company having an average annualized return of at least 20% in the past 3 years with at least 10 employees in the beginning of the period. To reach the next level of hyper-growth, you have to pair funding with an adapted strategy. An aspiring scaleup has a proven concept and is now looking to achieve global leadership in the market. You need experience, knowledge, and leadership to grow from a startup to a scaleup. Most startups never reach the scaleup phase because of a lack of these resources.

Are you ready to leave the startup phase behind you? Do you want to grow your business? Is now the time to establish new structures and responsibilities? Scaling up your company can offer more opportunities, possibilities, and freedom. As a result, you can spend more time on what sets your business apart from others and do what you excel at.
