Scale-up Atlantic

Scale-up Atlantic

Scale-up Atlantic is a six-month program that rapidly accelerates medium to large businesses and helps them to see up to 25% or $1,000,000 of growth. Based on curriculum developed by Babson University and Scalerator NEO, our objective is to help established businesses in the region to grow their operations and increase their revenue.

“I have doubled my workforce to 50, built out our delivery platform, and won regional, out-of-state contracts. From Day 1 there was constant pressure in the Scalerator Program to grow faster than I had been comfortable with.”
