Every year a series of 4 one-day workshops is organized. Each session focuses on one specific topic. The emphasis during these sessions is on providing practically relevant knowledge and tools for scale-up entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs discuss in group and learn from and with each other together with a topical expert.

Below some examples of topics discussed during the sessions:

    • HR and remuneration
    • Financing
    • Sales
    • Strategy 
    • Internationalization
    • Negotiation skills

Expert panel

Roundtable entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to submit a company-specific problem once a year to a panel of experts to get tailored advice. The panel is composed according to the specific issue scale-up entrepreneurs are struggling with.
