Scale Up Growth

NIKOS, UT’s department for Entrepreneurship, Strategy and Innovation Management is involved in a newly started research project by THNK, in collaboration with University of Utrecht and Groningen.

The project is founded by the Goldschmeding Foundation, and supported by Deloitte Fast Ventures. Isabella Hatak, Rainer Harms, Petra de Weerd-Nederhof and Aard Groen are involved as researchers.

By leveraging a network of practitioners around the world and their own research, THNK has developed a set of hypotheses on the success factors of these scale-ups. This builds on their 2015 collaboration with Deloitte Fast Ventures to explore the dynamics and characteristics of scale-ups, resulting in the Experience Game. The end product will be a validated model of Scale-Up Success Factors, complete with practical entrepreneur and practitioner insights and tools.
