Norwegian industry initiative GCE Subsea is offering a 12-week ScaleUp program suited for companies in position for growth and expansion.
The program is a result of business development collaboration with MIT, BTO and other Norwegian partners.
It is designed for Tech companies with a high growth potential. The ScaleUp accelerator is based on the MIT entrepreneurship model.
First cohort is planned for early 2018, to be held in Stavanger, Boston and Bergen.
A team of 2 – 3 persons from each participating company will develop and test various aspects of their scaling strategy.
This is an opportunity for the management team to work with central strategic issues together with world class faculty and business mentors in an intensive and structured process, GCE said.
The program consists of action-learning modules with workshops, simulation labs, and lectures from professors, investors and entrepreneurs. Between modules, teams will develop their scaling strategy through data gathering and analysis, followed by weekly feedback meetings with facilitators.
GCE Subsea is now planning startup in Bergen, early September 2018, with an information meeting held on Tuesday, May 22, and an additional information meeting in June.
The industry initiative said it is working on facilitating full or partial financing of the course for its partners and members. The cost today is NOK 200.000 per company.
