Final words from Ola Ahlvarsson
Q: What or who is a scale-up?
Participating companies should have a minimum annual turnover of €2M. Have been generating revenue in preceding 3 years, have a minimum personnel of at least 10 people and growing at least 20% in the preceding 1-3 years.
Unlike startups that typically have very little revenue, scale-ups have proven their business model.
Q: Is this event free?
For sure! We’re a not-for-profit consortium with the aim to facilitate growth in Nordic scale-up companies.
