BOSTON (PRWEB) September 21, 2020
Typically running from January to May, ScaleUp Cohort 6 saw an unprecedented year of growth and strength in the wake of COVID-19. Taking a short break from February to April and a summer hiatus, the program concluded in September with a vibrant Investor Showcase to close the program.
Chair of the ScaleUp Taskforce, Neeraj Chandra, stated, “the success of Cohort 6 is proof of the unique value the TIE ScaleUp program provides to entrepreneurs in New England. Working closely with dedicated highly curated mentors, who are repeat entrepreneurs, the current ScaleUp companies not only survived the unprecedented pandemic crisis but quite a few even grew stronger. It is this tangible proof of real contribution to the innovation ecosystem which I find most motivating."
Satish Tadikonda, serial entrepreneur and ScaleUp co-founder says, “In ScaleUp, companies undergo a core curriculum and are matched to work with sector relevant serial entrepreneurs and industry experts to create a roadmap to growth. This form of access to highly successful entrepreneurs and content is what differentiates TiE Boston and ScaleUp in the rich local entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
Anu Chitrapu, President of TiE Boston says, “The ScaleUp program is unique in that it provides not just mentors but coaches to the startups. The coaches are matched with the teams factoring in several dimensions like industry, team composition and stage of the startup amongst others. Think personal trainer as opposed to a group training class.”
