Presented by TiE Bangalore, SCALE UP is a day-long summit featuring comprehensive sessions to channel the vital knowledge and resources that Bangalore startups and small businesses need to achieve growth and scale. We are teaming up with many of our closest partners and collaborators to talk about the growth of Indian startups and path to the maturation of the ecosystem.  

Scale UP inviting the CEOs and Founders of India’s promising scale-ups to speak about their real industry experience in building and scaling their ventures. The event will focus on the twists and turns in scaling your startup such as when to scale, market dynamics, expanding operations, bringing on talent, setting up processes, etc. 

What’s Happening?

Its easy to start-up. But, it is really hard to scale-up a company. Most entrepreneurs never get out of start-up mode. The secret to scaling up a company is to stop doing a bunch of things entrepreneurs are taught to do when starting up and learn how to do things required to scale-up. This requires a change of mindset, skillset and implementation of processes and systems you couldn’t implement while you were starting up. We will work through the top challenges entrepreneurs face when making the transition from start-up to scale-up and identify what you need to do differently.
