100ScaleUPs - 2020 Edition

Eight companies have worked alongside experts and peers for 12 weeks to create robust strategies for scaling up their company’s projects globally in our programme; 100ScaleUPs.

GCE Ocean Technology has together with Norwegian Business School (BI), Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship and VIS developed this unique scaling programme to engage growth and internationalisation for Norwegian small and medium sized companies. The class of 2020 was the 3rd alumni in our programme.

The ScaleUp programme is designed to stress test your growth strategy making sure that the market wants what you have to offer and boosting your growth with tools taught by world class lecturers at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship.

The programme is divided in to 5 modules: market strategy, business model, international scaling, organizing the company, risk management and financing the growth.

MIT’s 24-step Disciplined Entrepreneurship roadmap was introduced digitally to this year’s participants.

One of the core modules is a week at MIT in Boston where the participants in addition to attending lectures also get to meet and mingle with MITs world class faculty and entrepreneurs.

This module was performed digitally this year due to Covid-19, by the reputable Professor Bill Aulet, Managing Director, Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, who gave the participants many a light-bulb moment through the 24-step Disciplined Entrepreneurship roadmap (photo).

This model is merging the best from methods like Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Jobs to Be Done and Business Model Canvas to give a roadmap in the entrepreneurial journey to success and make sure “the dog will eat the dogfood”.
