Scale-up Champions community is providing startup-support. New initiatives are coming this season.
We help you to connect, scale-up and boost your growth!
Scale-up Champions programme has given us a good understanding of a potential target market. Our contact through the programme has done a lot of thorough market research and presents it to us weekly. We are also discussing potential partnership opportunities with local companies!
Co-founder and CTO of 10Lines
During the project, we raised a pre-seed investment of 200k €. At the moment we have 3 pilots going on in Norway. Through strategic investors, it is easier to reach new clients as they are well connected within the industry.
CEO of Unsinkable Robotics
We applied to participate in “Scale-up Champions” Market Discovery Tour in Denmark and the DTU Ignite Startup Pitch competition in Copenhagen. It worked - we were selected and took the pitching stage. Now we are taking one step at a time and developing connections that hopefully will bring us local links and credentials.
Co-founder of Bitmetrics
Thanks to the experienced mentors from "Scale-up Champions Investment Readiness Programme", we gained knowledge and practical skills to develop scientific ideas, build a startup that attracts investments. We hope that our developed, tested and validated medical device - disposable syringe gel filler - will reach the Lithuanian market by 2023.

The program encouraged us to review our business plan and market entry strategy and widened our understanding of small markets and their entry strategies. We were lucky to meet amazing mentors at the “Scale-up Champions” project who helped us to prepare needed materials for startup profile, review business plan and to do return on investment, revenue, manufacturing expenses calculations.
Co-founder of BrachyDOSE, a MedTech startup from the Baltics
It was a great experience! As I develop a medical device for psoriasis treatment, new materials interest me. During the Tour, I met 3D printing startups that are taking the niche of flexible and bio sustainable printing services. Their solutions would be great for the design of my devices. Also, I got funding contacts - one VC fund from Brazil was very excited about our innovation and I am looking further for future communication with them.
Founder of EMPLASTRUM
"A great match! In my opinion, it is the success of a great mentoring experience. Also, the mentee has to be coachable and eager to receive feedback. I help agrotech startups to fast-forward B2B sales. It is a very structured process - you have to prepare for it and have an actual plan. The plan is a great tool to achieve your goals."
CEO of Nando Europe, MENTOR
"Mentorship provides the experience from the deep-tech field. Usually, I've been where the entrepreneur is now or is going to be in the future, so I can warn them about pitfalls, traps, and problems they will encounter. Basically, I play the role of the "future self" of the entrepreneur."
