First, you will go through a 60 minutes interview with an IMD professor, to get a sense of you and your firm’s development stage and challenges. This exchange will also confirm your scalability potential and founder motivation. Based on your needs, we will adapt the content and format of the LeadiNNg to Scale-Up program.
1 half-day of kick-off to get straight into the topic and get to know your peers. The goal of the program is to create a trustful group where you are confident to exchange and learn from each other.
Over 6 months, you will go through 10 sessions of 2-3 hours. Each session will be split in two parts: the first one will be covered by an IMD entrepreneurship professor and the other one by an experienced entrepreneur on the specific topic. The sessions will be hosted approximately every 3 weeks, in the evenings.
NB: One of your co-founders should apply and be participating regularly in the program to enable deeper exchanges in the group. Nevertheless, if you can’t join all the sessions, you can bring another member of your team to some of them.
Between sessions there will be “homework”, designed to take ideas and concepts deeper into your venture, and provide you with continuous practical feedback.
Once a month, you will be invited to the Scale Up Vaud networking events. A closing ceremony will also be organized to foster networking with a broader network.
