ABOUT THE PROGRAM

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Launchpad Scaleup is a 3-month, high-paced, experience-based accelerator program designed by serial entrepreneurs, investors, and industry leaders to help tech startups raise capital and boost sales. Since 2016 we have accelerated more than 200 startups and helped them raise over 500 MNOK.


We have successfully scaled some of Norway's hottest startups and learned that running a successful startup ultimately boils down to the founders' ability to convince investors and customers; thus, we have made that the focus of our programs.

01

What kind of startups are we looking for? 

We look for B2B startups with an enterprise solution, preferably with a SaaS model, but our core expertise is smart cities, renewable energy, and digital entrepreneurship.

 

Most successful applicants have international potential and ambition, raised some initial funding, received positive market validation (paying customer(s)), have a product and a team.

Furthermore, they are in a phase where they are ready to ramp up their sales.

With a network of over 100+ corporations and expert mentors, you will have all the necessities to build a successful business.

What kind of startups are we looking for? 

Securing funding is no easy feat. It takes a lot of careful planning and research to successfully reach fundraising goals.

 

And as we all know, appropriate funding is often vital to sustain and grow startups quickly. 

Over the years, we have helped countless startups with their fundraising rounds, all the way from MVP to exit.

 

We know what it takes to attract and convince investors both at early and later stages. In the program, we will use our long experience to help you achieve your fundraising goal through guiding and training and expose you to investors looking for the next big thing. 

The batch of 2020 received over NOK 32M in funding during the program period and even more right after. This year's goal is even higher!
