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 Masters 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 launched in London May 2018 and we are excited to be launching the third cohort in June 2019.
So why should I enrol on this program? Please watch the short testimonial video below to gain a deeper understanding of the program and to hear from some of the CEOs who are involved in the program.
Expressions of interest for the June class of 2019 are now been accepted. An application form may be obtained by contacting Neale Lewis as indicated below. Enrolment for the inaugural class will be limited to 5 companies.
