Boston ScaleUp company and get personalized mentoring for your startup’s challenges. Get advice on sales, product market/ fit, pricing, packaging and more while joining a peer community of founders.
What we're looking for:
Through the diversity of knowledge and experience in the mentor pool, we can support the growth of any compelling company from any sector.
We are looking for companies at an appropriate stage of growth to maximize the offerings of the TiE ScaleUp program and to enter the TiE Boston community. For this reason, we do not have a set quota of companies for each cohort. However, we do strive to keep the cohort small to ensure each company is receiving the attention and resources necessary to succeed.
TiE ScaleUp is a "sector agnostic" accelerator and we bring in companies from all areas of industry.
Companies that are in a position to best leverage the offerings of ScaleUp often exhibit the following characteristics:
- Commercially viable
- Paying Customers
- Planning to raise in the next 6 - 12 months
- Management team in place
- Receptive to review of company product/market fit
- Understands their greatest challenges to scale
- Founding team is open and receptive to help
- Located in New England area
- Commitment to participate in and complete the program
Exceptions can be made for companies depending on the growth cycle of their sector. Not all of these characteristics must necessarily be present for a company to receive an invitation to TiE ScaleUp. If you have any questions on your eligibility, contact Simone LaPray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
