Scale-up Coaching phase 2


If your application to phase 2 of the Scale-up Coaching programme is approved, you will receive an additional voucher budget that can be used for coaching services by Innosuisse coaches. An additional budget for the coaching will be gradually released as each specific milestone set by Innosuisse is reached until the granted voucher has expired.

The overall coaching process and voucher management is tracked and administered in the Innosuisse online tool.

Goal of the Scale-up Coaching phase 2

Phase 2 of the Scale-up Coaching is used primarily to address the key development issues identified in phase 1 and to further develop the growth strategy, including organisational processes and structures consulting different scale-up and special coaches. The aim is to achieve maximal growth with the granted voucher in the remaining time of the overall two years of the coaching.

In addition to the coaching, the programme includes Peer-to-Peer networking occasions, workshops, and other events focussing on relevant topics to further promote the growth of your business.

Coach Team

In the Scale-up Coaching, you will invite a subset of Innosuisse scale-up coaches to be your coaching team using the Innosuisse online tool. Innosuisse can support you with the selection. The coach team will guide you through the programme and will work with you on the development of your business. Where necessary, additional coaches can be consulted.

Special Coach

You have the opportunity to receive advice from specialist coaches on matters such as intellectual property, fundraising and investor relations, organisational growth and scaling, and more in form of individual workshops. You can book special coaches using the Innosuisse online tool and your lead coach or coach team can support you in the selection.

Milestone Review

To structure and support the coaching process, the scale-up has to commit to milestones set by Innosuisse and report on their progress at a Milestone Review within a given time frame. Milestones are specific to each business case and in the interests of the development of the scale-up.
