ScaleUp America is looking for initiatives and enterprises across the country that are Ready-2-Scale. We are forming a ScaleUp America Innovation Fund to support our ScaleUp America Innovation Challenge, to be unveiled in the fall of 2015.


Our goal is to connect Ready-2-Scale initiatives and enterprises that have a positive social impact with the resources they need at the national, regional and local levels to scale up, create new jobs and have economic and social impact in their local regions.

The competition is open to all scalable enterprises, regional and community development organizations, municipalities, education institutions and innovation hubs and clusters. Our lens is innovation, inclusion and impact.

If you have a team, innovative product or service, market validation and a capacity to grow and increase job opportunities, we invite you to enter the ScaleUp America Innovation Challenge 2015.
