What is Scaling Value?

Scaling Value is maximising the potential value that can be created by an innovation or new enterprise. Too many innovations and start-ups (both new ventures and within established organisations) flounder and don't achieve their full potential. They fail to scale.


Successful scaling leads to creating the maximum amount of value for the maximum number of people and organisations that is possible with your innovation. But the scale journey is long and complex. Even for businesses that have grown seemingly exponentially, the story is one of years of hard work and struggle.

The Book

The Scaling Value Playbook provides an overview of the challenges in moving innovation to scale. It offers case studies and practical guidance on how to address these challenges in order to scale your innovation. It provides a framework for developing and implementing a strategy, stress testing your product or service, getting your organisation ready for scale, and assembling a value network to get you to the top of the Innovation Mountain. With dozens of practical tools, templates, and tips, this book will be an invaluable guide on your scaling journey.

Scale Accelerator

Our research and experience has shown that innovation teams benefit from external support to take their innovations to scale. We we have spent the  best part of a decade providing programmes on behalf of investors and funders to the innovation teams and start ups they are investing in.

We have supported over 100 innovation teams through this process, and are able to bring the learning we have gained across industries and sectors to create an intensive and impactful programme that can be tailored to individual funder and investor needs for their investment and funding innovation and start up portfolios.

In our book we outline dozens of tools, templates and tips to support innovators on their journey to scale. These tools are based on our research and our experience of working on scale with innovation teams over the past decade. They have all been tried and tested in the real world.

We provide access to some of the key templates and exercises here. Please feel free to download and use them. If you want guidance and support let us know by contacting us on the email below.
