a community initiative for the development of
scale-up entrepreneurship in Greece
What is Scale-Up Greece?
Scale-Up Greece is a meetup community for anyone interested in scale-up entrepreneurship; and how venture funding and risk financing work towards entrepreneurial success.
Why we created Scale-Up Greece
A common misconception, around the world, is that the number of start-ups or the number of SMEs in existence have something to do with the state of the economy. Another common misconception is that venture funding is a prerequisite for entrepreneurial success, in our era.
In the Scale-Up Greece community, we share real-world experiences on how truly international scale-ups were born and grown, aiming to boost the morale of entrepreneurs and to help them think out of the box regarding scaling their businesses. And, of course, we mean to clear up any misunderstandings about venture funding and risk financing.

“I now define company culture as the way it feels when I walk in the door, and the way it feels to leave at the end of the day,” – Author Kristen Hadeed.
As far as company culture goes, you can’t get much simpler and authentic than the above sentence.
To scale up, or not to scale up: that is the question. No, hold on. It’s not a question at all – it’s a must if you want your startup to be successful. If you’re running or working at a startup, the question of scaling up should hopefully be a “when”, and not an “if” issue.
Question. Exactly how do you scale up your startup? The answer is quite simple
A wind of change seems to finally be blowing through the Greek startup ecosystem. And this is a change which not only affects startups, but also investors and in fact Greek society at large. What is this change, I hear you ask?
