Innovation with impact happens when there is an attitude, supported by a vision and a clear strategy.

Epicenter Accelerate presents Nordic Scalers, the program that seeks to build the worlds best scaleup ecosystem or learning, peer knowledge sharing, hands-on support, and developing networks. This is achieved by delivering a program that brings a fragmented market together, stays true to scaleup needs, and focuses on helping scaleup founders and entrepreneurs to create more wealth and jobs in society as they grow their companies to become some of the biggest exports from the region.


The program is delivered to you by world-class scaleup entrepreneurs (coaches and inspiration) who’ve scaled tech companies themselves. So this will be a program built on the knowledge of what scaleups actually need. It’s not a marketing exercise, it’s not matchmaking on the surface and it’s not a mingle. This is about rolling up our sleeves, going deep, and solving real challenges. It truly is a program by scaleup entrepreneurs for scaleup entrepreneurs. The program will start the 25th of September 2023
