Meet the scale-ups!

Ready to Scale is off to a great start with 11 fast-growing companies. 

Running a startup is exciting unless you get stuck in the startup phase forever. That’s why we developed the ACE Ready to Scale program for ambitious entrepreneurs that want to grow fast! The program consists of six in-depth masterclasses and additional access to investors, coaches and student talent. With the program, we aim to help founders identify opportunities, build a strong team and get investment-ready. The program runs twice a year (April-June & Sept – Nov). We kicked off with the first group on April 3rd with inspiring strategy sessions. Other topics we’ll cover in the coming months are Execution / Team / Leadership / Growth / Funding.
