Matching talent, investors and corporates in Amsterdam

Designed by entrepreneurs, investors and universities in Amsterdam, the READY2Scale programme offers a mix of personalised advice, workshops, mentoring and matchmaking with investors, corporates and talent. The six-day course helps boost companies to the next phase of growth.

The course is aimed at entrepreneurs of knowledge- and science-based companies in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, North Holland and Flevoland. The companies are required to have an annual revenue of between €100,000 and €2.5 million – or €100 000 plus funding.

Planning and matchmaking

The course identifies a company’s growth opportunities nationally and internationally while tackling essential issues for growing businesses, including defining an ideal workforce, finding talent and securing funding.

The programme actively matches a company’s goals with suitable talent, potential investors and corporate customers. Participants will be assigned one or more mentors from a pool built in close cooperation with MIT, ACE Venture Lab's network and Amsterdam Business School.

An impactful programme

READY2scale was founded by ACE Venture Labs in collaboration with The Start-Up Network Amsterdam (SUN). ACE is an Amsterdam-based incubator and accelerator that aims to facilitate high-impact entrepreneurship in the area by offering training, support, mentoring and networking to startups and students. SUN is a foundation in Amsterdam for the development of innovative SMEs through matchmaking and support.

The six-day programme for groups – which takes place from May to November – costs €2,750; however, a more tailored approach can also be arranged.
