ScaleUp WNC 2024 Program

Who is ScaleUp For

There is an important distinction between Growth vs. Scale. Traditional growth means you are increasing revenue at the same rate that you’re adding resources. In other words, your costs are keeping pace with your revenue. Scale, on the other hand, is the ability to increase revenue at a much greater rate than the resources and costs involved. Growth is linear while Scale is exponential. Scale happens with the investment of time, money and energy in repeatable and predictable processes.

Mountain BizWorks’ ScaleUp program is designed for existing companies that have been in business for around two years, are growing fast and have a proven product/service that a growing market of customers want. If you are a founder who is focused and prepared to exponentially scale your business, then ScaleUp is for you! 

Mountain BizWorks and our partners are excited to support the 12th ScaleUp WNC cohort.

ScaleUp 2024 Program Dates

The ScaleUp program includes a kick-off event, eight core concept sessions, and 10 hours of one-on-one technical assistance and mentoring to support the implementation of your strategic growth plan and culminate in a live pitch showcase event at Mountain Raise (optional).

ScaleUp is open to applicants from anywhere across WNC. The tentative dates for Cohort 12 are below. All sessions will be held in person. Program participants are expected to attend all of the sessions for their cohort.

All applicants are asked to hold the above session dates and times on their calendars and, if accepted, are expected to commit to the entire duration of the program.
