Every day thousands and thousands start-ups are being created in Europe. But there is almost universal agreement that future economic growth in Europe will be driven by those businesses who can scale up successfully, making that all-important transition from ‘S’ to ‘M’ and beyond. Anything that can ease the burden and make this journey easier will ultimately drive economic growth, spur job creation and increase the competitiveness.

This High Tech Scale-Up Conference will give you insight what to do, how to act and why to continue with your scale-up.

Target group: Management of any Start-up, Scale-up or corporate and any investor should attend this mind-boggling conference. Don’t you want to scale-up without growing pains!

What is a Scale-up?
A ‘scale-up’ is an enterprise with average annualised growth in employees or turnover greater than 20 per cent per annum over a three year period, and with more than 10 employees at the beginning of the observation period.In growing from 10 to 100 employees, to 500, 1,000 and so on, companies have specific requirements for capital, management, skills and organisational processes. This can lead to ‘growing pains’ that can be easily and effectively addressed. Scale-ups are not a phenomenon only found in ‘digital’ or ‘technology’ or ‘cities’ or ‘clusters’. A small number of high-growth firms are vital to driving job growth and overall economic growth.
