100ScaleUPS – Global Scaling of Technology Companies

What should companies do to expand globally? How do you achieve rapid growth?

Scaling is a mature industry with fierce global competition. On 11 April we invite key players in the global Scaleup community to discuss how to build global technology companies. Successful serial entrepreneurs and investors will share their scaling journeys with challenges, failures and how they made the breakthrough in two key markets: USA and China. We will discuss how companies should work strategically when preparing to win in this global arena.

Together with Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, GCE Ocean Technology, VIS, Investinor and Verdane, we are launching the 2019 Global ScaleUP Program, aiming to help companies to develop a strategy to expand globally.

Let us know if you find this relevant and would like to contribute to the conversation, together with Professor Per Ingvar Olsen(BI), Professor Dequan Zhu(Beijing-Tsinghua Industrial R&D Institute), Lars Dahle(Dignio), Geir Førre(serial entrepreneur), Stine Foss(Northzone), Henrik Müller-Hansen(Gelato Group), and Heiko Hildebrandt(Target Circle AS)
