SCALEit is your path to international scaling

SCALEit equips Danish companies to scale globally. Participating in our programmes will enable you to obtain solid feedback from our networks, to pitch to international investors and to have your business model made ready for international scaling.

SCALEit has been created with one clear objective in mind: to help Danish tech start-ups scale globally.


We prepare you to seize the opportunities and tackle the challenges that the market offers as well as acquire specific knowledge about how and in what way your business model needs adjusting. You get the opportunity to pitch your idea and obtain feedback on your business model and product. SCALEit ensures that your company becomes attractive from a global perspective.

What does it specifically involve?


SCALEit is customised to both the market and the needs of the participating companies, and can be used both in Denmark and abroad. Below are a couple of examples:


  • A preparation workshop is run in Denmark introducing you to the new market. Together with Innovation Centre Denmark, you work on refining your business model and analyse growth opportunities.
  • SCALEit is an intensive week, in which you go out and meet the ecosystem together with Innovation Centre Denmark. You meet some of the brightest people at the local start-up scene and pitch your idea to investors, entrepreneurs and commercial advisers. Their feedback will identify how your business can attract investment and be made scaleable.

SCALEit can have a technological, sectoral or developmental focus. The programme is organised according to different focus areas, the choice of which solely depends on the needs of the participants and the strongholds in the particular market.


In Silicon Valley, the focus will often be on adapting the company to the American market, pitching and fundraising. In Munich, the focus is on high-tech production and B2B agreements, partnerships with industrial companies, and startup/corporate partnerships. Bangalore in India is strong on fintech, and Tel Aviv offers good opportunities for Life Science R&D and partnerships.

SCALEit Ignite Silicon Valley

"The workshops, evaluations, meetings and introductions to the entire ecosystem that we attended during SCALEit opened doors for us – not just to the network in Silicon Valley, but also to mentors who supported us in moving forward. My advice to start-ups is to dare go global. You don’t need to wait and grow in Denmark first."
- Kenneth Madsen, CEO, DXTR-Tactile
