Accelerator Scale-up Programmes

ScaleUP accelerators targeting technology companies with high growth potential.

About the programmes

Our target is technology companies that are ready to SCALE globally. We close the knowledge gap in their scaling strategies, bridging expertise from leading universities, such as MIT, Berkeley and Tsinghua, together with renown investor, entrepreneurs and industrial clusters.

We’re open to all sectors. We work closely with leading knowledge and industrial clusters in the targeted markets.

BI is one of the leading business schools in Europe, and no. 1 in Norway. We currently run two accelerators. 100ScaleUPs – targeting Nordic technology companies and BI-Tsinghua accelerator – targeting Chinese technology companies.

The programmes consist of action-learning modules with workshops, simulation labs, and lectures from professors, investors and entrepreneurs. Between modules the teams develop their scaling strategies through data gathering and analysis followed by feedback meetings with facilitators.

A team of 2-3 persons from the companies’ management team develops and tests various aspects of their scaling strategies. This is an opportunity for the management team to work with central strategic issues together with world class faculties and business mentors in an intensive and structured process.

The programmes focus on developing and verifying an effective INTERNATIONAL SCALING STRATEGY, and is tailored to scaling challenges with international growth ambitions.
