Transform your business! 

SCALEUP Maryland™ is a four-month program, taught by seasoned entrepreneurs and business development professionals, designed to help executives create an executable Strategic Growth Plan. Companies with revenues up to $10M across multiple industries will develop tools to reach targeted milestones. Each year, two diverse cohorts up to 12 companies each are selected.

How does SCALEUP Maryland™ work?

The team has developed a curriculum that goes into depth on these aspects, aligning the coursework with the real world experiences of the participating companies, and developing strategies for change and growth. Participants will receive a Certificate of completion upon submission of a confidential Strategic Plan.

Leadership – Building Trust, Team Building, Communication, Mentoring

Understanding and Managing Cash Flow – Cash, A/R, A/P, Inventory

Sales & Marketing – Value Proposition, Positioning, Product/Market Fit

Acquiring and Managing Resources – Purchasing and Supply Chain

How are companies selected?

Twice a year, applications are taken online, followed by a vetting process, to select the Cohort for Spring or Fall.

What are the obligations of each participant?

Each participant has committed to attending the weekly sessions and completing the related work. The Cohort meets virtually, every Tuesday from 3:55-5:30 pm.

When is the next cohort forming?

Applications for Cohort 5 are closed. If you believe your company might be a good fit for the Fall SCALEUP Maryland™ Cohort, applications will open again in late Summer/Early Fall.

Maryland companies poised for growth and expansion are encouraged to apply for the SCALEUP Maryland™ program, sponsored by the Maryland Department of Commerce and T. Rowe Price Foundation.
