Are you a scaleup?

Defining a scaleup

Generally, a scaleup business is one that is a minimum 3 years old with 20% growth year on year. You would already have a product with market fit, customers and investment but want to collaborate with a large corporate to help you scale quickly. Unleashed provides access to Lion executives and business units to help scaleups grow.

The aim of the scaleup program is to achieve a commercial agreement with Lion to take your business proposition or product to the Lion network.

Your eligibility will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Your business aligns to one of the Lion themes
  • You have an existing customer base with existing revenue
  • Your product is scalable with large markets, users and revenue as a business goal
  • You are capable of delivering a solution to Lion within three months of commencing the program
  • You have a well-formed, humming team

What is the potential gain?

  • Collaboration or commercial agreements with Lion including distribution, white label and vendor opportunities
  • Access to Lion executives and industry experts
  • Access to Lion insights and mentoring
  • Mentoring and coaching by some of the industry's leading experts
  • Access to program additional value provided by our strategic partners and sponsors
