In order to be in the SCALE 100 you need to have a product in market that has traction but that has NOT raised Series A.The goal of speed dating is to introduce the “up and coming” startups that are getting ready for their series A in the next 3-18 months.
If you’re a community leader reading this, we hope you’ll try a few of these ideas.
If your startup is pre-traction, you should apply to present at the LAUNCH Festival (announcement coming October 1st). We have 10 (unpaid) speaking slots left for founders or investors.
If you would like to talk at this event the best way is to pitch us on a talk with the format of “How I built COMPANY NAME from X to Z, and from A to F, doing these three things.” Every talk at SCALE is designed to be massively helpful in either growing your company or helping you raise capital. We have eight paid speaking slots with demo tables for partners who are looking to demo their products or services to the audience. All of our speakers must rehearse their talks at least one time with me and my team.

Concuerden en asignarle el nivel 3, 4, or 5 al “mono”. • Desarrollen las habilidades de vuestros subordinados.
