Programs for  Entrepreneurs

Are you ready to scale your triple bottom line business?

You are:

  • A founder or managing a scale-up
  • Based in the Netherlands
  • Have a business that makes the planet better in some way
  • At least 15 FTE and growing FTE at 20% minimum annually
  • Have ambitions to have a major, international scale impact, reaching at least 1 million people and ultimately reaching a value of >1 billion EUR.
  • Founded after 2007

If this is not you, never fear! There are plenty of earlier stage start-up resources.  You can find a list of resources here:  https://www.startupdelta.org

If this is you, you probably already know that your chances of successfully scaling are slim.  Our research has shown that only 0.4% of startups scale.

We are here to change that

Runway program

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.

The next two Runway Classes are set to start in March 2018.  Please contact Laurie Kemp at Laurie.kemp@scaleupnation.com for more information.

Flight program

For when 6 days of learning with peers is not enough.

We work with your venture to help tackle your scaling challenges.  

The Flight Program offers three years of support to scaling founders.  The Flight Program offers:

  • A serial entrepreneur (The Venture Partner) who can act as a sounding board for the founders
  • A leadership coach to work with the management team
  • Four development sprints per year where we bring our experts to help you tackle the most pressing issues you have in your company
