Looking to expand in the US? Then this might just be the program for you! The Scale up program US for cleantech companies will support companies throughout their scaling process: from understanding the market and developing/strengthening a proposition, to preparing a pitch that is tailored to the US market, working with a mentor to understand do’s and don’ts, and finally a 3-day visit to Boston to meet potential partners or customers.

The program will be spread over a few months so companies save sufficient time to develop their proposition and will therefore partly take place online. 

Who should participate in this program?

  • Your company already has (some) traction on the US market and/or sufficient experience in foreign European markets.
  • Your growth strategy includes scaling to the US significantly in the next 3 years. This also means having committed significant resources to this process.
  • You are a scale-up company looking to expand your business to the US
  • You have at least two employees available to participate in the program, one of which is in a management position. You have on average 3 hours per week available to invest in this program between November 2022 and March 2023.
