Are You Ready to Scale Up?

Is now the right time to grow your company? growth-key-951783

TPG is excited to support the launch of ScaleUpU. Be a part of the first ScaleUpU initiative in the world beginning in Kansas City this November during Entrepreneurs week.

15 high-potential companies will be selected this year and in each of the next 10 years (150 firms in all), to spend 24 months in an education, coaching, and technology-supported process to address four key aspects of scaling a business: People, Strategy, Execution, and Cash.

There are big goals here, and your company could be a beneficiary. ScaleUpU expects these outcomes:

  1. Putting one of the selected firms on a strong trajectory to $1 billion in revenue – adding an important anchor firm to its city and broader business community.
  1. Helping five to 10 companies scale and then exit for a combined $1 billion to $3 billion – adding significant wealth to their communities.
  1. Assisting 70% – 80% of the remaining 140 firms to increase their size 3x to 10x

These goals aren’t manufactured, given the bona fides behind this program. TPG and I know the players and have applied their resources ourselves.

You may know the book Scaling Up: How a Few Companies Make it…and Why the Rest Don’t, by Verne Harnish, founder of the Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO), author of Mastering the Rockefeller Habits, founder/CEO of Gazelles, Inc. and co-founder and Principal of Gazelles Growth Institute.

Verne and other leaders of business growth are allied in creating ScaleUpU, as a way to craft “scaleup ecosystems” to complement the robust startup ecosystems developing in cities worldwide.

ScaleUpU will eventually be in cities nation- and world-wide. But it starts in Kansas City, this month – starting with joining Verne Harnish for dinner in KC on November 14.
