Scale Up Milwaukee Growth Accelerator

The application period has closed. Stayed tuned for our announcement for Cohort 6.

The Scale Up Milwaukee Growth Accelerator, formerly known as the Scalerator, is the flagship program of Scale Up Milwaukee. To date, five cohorts representing 71 companies with combined revenues exceeding $320 million, have graduated from the Growth Accelerator.

The growth-training program teaches business owners the practical skills to inject growth into their ventures. The Growth Accelerator focuses on three primary areas: sales and marketing, organizational development and entrepreneurial finance. Additionally, the program works with investors, banks, professional services firms, universities and public sector stakeholders to support growth.

Our alumni represent various industries and services, and it is their variety that showcases our idea that any company can grow when given the right resources. The companies are projecting an average 23% revenue growth in 2018 and have hired over 800 new employees to date. The growth of these companies is catalyzing the growth of the region.
