Meet the team
The Art of Scaling Masterclass is a half-day session where our scaling experts help leadership teams build the toolbox they need to start scaling. The next session will be on June 22nd, and will count on a team of 4 scaling experts. They each took quite different paths in their past, but they all have something in common: a passion to help companies scale. Meet the first scaling expert, the founder of ScaleUpNation, Menno van Dijk.
“With the Art of Scaling Masterclass, you’ll develop a scaling mindset and qualify yourself for scale-up success.”
After studying Physics at Leiden University, the scaling expert Menno van Dijk worked for McKinsey for more than 20 years. He gained lots of experience on strategy and growth with many companies all over the world. Then, he decided to come back to Amsterdam, where he co-founded THNK, the school for entrepreneurship. After some years, he was ready for the next big thing: founding ScaleUpNation. His company came alive with two assumptions in his mind: “Large societal challenges in the world are also large entrepreneurial opportunities. And only the companies that scale can move the needle in terms of impact, value creation and employment”.
Menno and the ScaleUpNation research team analysed a database of 500.000 companies, and confirmed that only very few manage to scale. He asked himself “why do we focus so much on start-ups? We should create more scale-ups!”. To achieve this high-flying goal, he will join the Masterclass faculty in guiding ambitious leadership teams with his scaling expertise. “I got a deep knowledge on what makes a start-up scale or stall. I can provide you clarity – on your vision, your strategy and your priorities”. Are you ready to kickstart your scaling journey?
