SUPPORTING SCALE-UPS SINCE 2016

Scale Up Vaud is an initiative powered by Innovaud. Born from the observation that start-ups are well surrounded in their creation phase and that scale-ups are left alone with their whole new set of needs, Scale Up Vaud is the exchange place for such growing companies.

By working directly with these companies, Innovaud aims at reinforcing the innovation ecosystem, bringing all stakeholders together, and catalyzing the economic and entrepreneurial strengths of our region. 

WHAT IS A SCALE-UP?

A company enters a phase of scaling-up when its main challenge is not to find a viable business model anymore, but rather to grow in order to execute this business model to reach the whole of the potential market. It can be a start-up that has validated its business model, or an SME that is renewing its offering. Keywords such as growth, recruitment and internationalisation are linked to scale-ups. Are you a scale-up?
