The founders that we revere are famous not because they started but because they scaled. Many successful startups stumble at 40 + employees, as scaling is completely different to starting up. New ways to think your business in the areas of Purpose, Product, Process & People hold the key to transitioning from a startup to a scaleup. This is still a new area of study but already there are very useful insights for anyone facing the scaleup challenge

  • 17:45-18:00 Registration
  • 18:00-18:10 IE introduction
