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(co-founder and CEO Dignio), Geir Førre(serial entrepreneur in Chipcon and Energy Micro), Stine Foss(partner and CFO Northzone), Henrik Müller-Hansen(co-founder and CEO Gelato Group), and Heiko Hildebrandt(co-founder and CEO Target Circle AS)
