PARTNERING IMPACT HUBS

Each Impact Hub taking part in this program is working in eight locations with partners who will accompany you on your year-long journey. You will work closely together with Scaling Managers located in Amsterdam, Athens, Bucharest, London Kings Cross, Madrid, Milan, Stockholm and Vienna. They are expert mentors who will provide you with knowledge, skills, access to investor networks and advice throughout the program.

How much does it cost and how you can apply?

Program costs are mainly subsidized by our international sponsors and partners, and there is a minimum contribution from the participating scaling teams themselves. There are limited places available, so do your best to convince us that you deserve to be one of the participants selected! You may join no matter the domain of your business. The program is already running. But if you are interested and feeling ready to scale, please contact us by filling out the form below.
