Our focus is on supporting high-growth technology companies around the world during their most fragile period of growth. Through a rigorous screening process, we bring together the top founders and teams inside a “pay it forward” community and supply the resources, advice and shared learnings that they need to build globally competitive companies. Our Peer Groups leverage the expertise and support of our community to build stronger, more resilient companies, while our in-house programming and services are designed to directly address the needs of our scaleups by connecting them with top talent, education, and special offers.
