Target group and prerequisites
Nordic countries have built a great ecosystem for start-up entrepreneurs; there is lots of help available for different issues. This has lead to a record-high number of growth companies but according to studies, only 0.4% of startups can successfully transform to a scaleup.
The two leading business schools in the Nordics have combined their knowledge and experiences to help companies to scale. Aalto University Developing Entrepreneurship and BI Norwegian Business School have a long history of working globally, providing a research-based and highest-quality level of entrepreneurial education, leadership and strategy development using innovative, agile, and practical methods. With the GlobalScaleX program, we are creating a Nordic collaboration that brings unique benefits for scaleups offering broader networking possibilities for peer learning and ensuring that companies have the skills and knowledge to reach their full potential.
The GlobalScaleX program offers on-point learnings and tools focusing on the challenges that scaleup companies are facing. Learnings are implemented right away to the business. The program covers the most critical vectors that scaleup companies need to focus on to grow successfully. We invite the growth-oriented scaleup leaders to take the time and think about what to do and when to do it to achieve the best possible results.
On a personal level, you will benefit from understanding and reflecting on your personal leadership capabilities, improving your own, organizational, and team performance, and getting inspiration and tools for innovative and agile ways of working. At the organizational level, your team will save months or even years of work by getting valuable support for decision-making and identifying where to target resources to maximize growth. The program helps you to clarify your company's business strategy and optimize processes. You will find the right contacts and networks to scale your business to the next level.
The program consists of five comprehensive 2-day modules, company-specific mentoring sessions, and Nordea Investor Speed Dating Event. The mentoring process will focus more closely on the most crucial pain points for your company. During the modules, you will find out your company's current situation, set future targets, and run a GAP analysis to identify where to target resources to maximize growth. The program offers tools for example for strategy development, sales and marketing, leadership, and financial management. The program is an excellent opportunity to network with different ecosystems, meet investors and potential new customers.
The first module of the program will be delivered online, the second and third modules are held in Oslo, Norway, the fourth module at Aalto ENT's premises in Helsinki, Finland, and the fifth module will take place in the United Kingdom.
