Accelerate your company’s growth with the ScaleUp

April 2017 - Now’s the time to apply for ScaleUp, a program designed to accelerate companies to significant growth and expansion. Presented by the Thurston EDC Center for Business & Innovation (CB&I) and funded through a contract with the U.S. Small Business Administration, participation is completely FREE. 

ScaleUp is designed for companies in all industries that have been in operation two or more years, with revenues between $150,000 and $500,000 per year. It’s a comprehensive business growth training program which includes in-person classroom training, peer engagement, and one-on-one consultation to help business owners plan and achieve their goals.

Visit the ScaleUp website for further information about the program and view this 2-minute video for a taste of the experience.  The CB&I has offered three ScaleUp training cohorts since launching in 2016 and the graduates are seeing impressive results.

“Total revenues increased 30% compared to 2015 and 50% compared to 2014.  Net income increased 300% compared to 2015 and 700% compared to 2014.  We conservatively project another 50% increase in revenues for 2017. Thanks for just offering this opportunity.”

“I’ve gained lots of insightful information and tools, and the ability to connect with like-minded individuals in the region has been really valuable.”

The upcoming 14-week experience begins May 4, 2017, and runs through August 3, 2017.
