What do we look for in a Participant?

A Founder of an early stage start-up who is aware that the scaling journey can be a minefield, but with the right knowhow from people who have been there before, the journey through this minefield can be navigated without trip-ups or blow-ups. The start-up is growing rapidly, with ambitious scale ideas; and therefore keen to learn.
