ScaleUp Program is a four-month acceleration program designed to support startups with high-impact potential in the Florida ecosystem to scale.

Scale-ups – companies at least three years old with a minimum of 20% CAGR – are important to the development of an economy because once they hit moderate scale or greater, they generate 80% of jobs in Miami. However, 99% of startups in Miami die before reaching 5 years of operation. Therefore, it’s crucial to bridge the gap between start-up to scale-up with support that actually helps companies scale.
