What is the Scalerator?
The Scalerator is an intense two month training pilot (taking place in four 2-day workshops and activities between the workshops) which will take place in September and October. Ventures will receive training and mentoring, along with structured assignments from our experts over the course of the program. The core resources will be faculty from Babson College and other experts, local and international. For the past 20 years Babson has been ranked above Harvard, Stanford and MIT for its practical entrepreneurship education.
Scalerator 2013 Sessions
- September 19th-20th
- September 26th-27th
- October 10th-11th
- October 30th-31st
Who should apply?
We are looking for ventures that have a powerfully strong ambition to grow and are open to learning new ways to do that.
This pilot program will only be offered to a dozen or so selected companies and their teams. If successful, as we hope, and Scale Up Milwaukee “scales up” beyond this initial phase, there will be additional Scalerator programs, as well as many other activities.
