We partner with local leaders and dynamic organizations to improve the
competitive performance of underrepresented populations and build inclusive local economies.


ScaleUp Partners offered a series of classroom workshops in September 2017 to students at Clark Atlanta University to introduce them to their local innovation economy and provide a greater understanding of specific steps they could take to engage in the process of developing a more inclusive economic competitiveness planning process with equitable access and outcomes for communities of color. Below is the presentation used in the workshop.

Contact ScaleUp Partners to book a workshop tailor-made for your group, organization or institution.

 

ScaleUp Partners provides experienced insight and expertise to unleash a diverse pipeline of qualified workforce and entrepreneurial talent. We assist local leaders and stakeholders in identifying value hidden talent in urban and rural blind spots that can scale to fuel job growth and economic competitiveness. ScaleUp Partners is the nation's only consultancy serving to connect economically disconnected and underrepresented populations to local innovation ecosystems and existing Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) planning. Inclusive Competitiveness™ is our innovative, disruptive approach to help communities discover a more productive economic model for the betterment of all.

From where will underserved Americans’ new jobs, wealth and enterprises come if underserved Americans don’t create them? It’s time for us to catalyze an Inclusive Competitiveness Movement.

WHO WILL CREATE THE JOBS OF TOMORROW? 

Hispanic and Black American entrepreneurs represent the fastest rate of entrepreneurial growth in America. Yet, by mid-century these two demographics alone will comprise 42% of the nation's population while producing less than 4% of GDP and virtually no job growth. Unless the nation commits to investing in the innovative talent inherent in communities of color at the local level and scaling up their business productivity, America risks losing capacity to sustain her global competitiveness ranking in the world. Inclusive Competitiveness is a demographically driven national economic imperative we cannot afford to ignore.
