Most cities have robust startup eco-systems. Currently, the international focus is pivoting to create complementary scaleup eco-systems for middle-market companies. Ultimately, it is the successful startups that scaleup into large, vibrant companies which drive economies.
In London and elsewhere, there are several programs designed to help startup companies. However, for organisations that have passed the startup phase, the options are very limited particularly for middle-market, high-potential firms with revenues of £5 million – £100 million. Yet these firms have the best chance to scale 3x – 10x (and beyond) and to contribute significant growth to local economies.
Identifying, educating, supporting and honoring these companies – as communities similarly do for local startups and larger, established firms – is the essence of the Scaling Up Executive Program
Verne Harnish, International business consultant, coach and author, has initiated a 12 month Executive Education Program to facilitate middle-market firms scaleup into larger firms. The inaugural Scaling Up Executive program in the UK will be launched in London on Wednesday May 2nd 2018 and run for 2 and 1/2 days through to Friday 4th May.
So why should I enrol on this program? Please watch the short video below where Verne articulates his passion for helping companies Scale Up and what it means to some of the leaders of the fastest growing companies in the world including Infusionsoft, Rackspace and Atlassian.
Expressions of interest for the inaugural class of 2018 are now been accepted. An application form may be obtained by contacting Neale Lewis as indicated below. Enrollment for the inaugural class will be limited to 10 companies.
