What We Look For
We offer resources to entrepreneurs who are in the scale-up phase of their business, many of whom have been operating their business for 3 years. This is often the period when crucial resources are needed to scale and push through barriers to being a viable player in the market.
We seek out entrepreneurs that have a proven track record and have built a business to at least 250-thousand USD in revenue. This tells us that this entrepreneur has the right skills necessary for acceleration.
Additionally, we look for companies that are poised for scalability lead by entrepreneurs who have great ideas that are backed by strategic thought and strong due diligence. Our entrepreneurs have researched their industry and identified a distinct value proposition, and our support programme helps to push through to grow beyond the obstacles.
It’s great to follow your passion, but entrepreneurs should follow it into an industry that offers enough growth potential to profitably scale. The best kind of risk is a calculated risk and the entrepreneurs that truly benefit from our programme operate sustainable businesses that add real value – one that will attract investment, create jobs and earn revenue. Our entrepreneurs think globally, or at least regionally, from day one.
