The “Scaleup4Europe” project’s objective is the establishment of four cross-border operating “Scaleup Labs”.

The Scaleup Labs are based on the ”living lab” concept and support qualifying scaleups in achieving a “Proof of Scalability”. The “Proof of Scalability” is achieved when the scaleups comply with all requirements of general technological, market, organizational and investor readiness and their innovation is adapted to a specific customer need.

The general goal is to establish sustainable support structures that connect four partnering startup ecosystems and their deep tech member communities in an innovative way that creates a lasting and larger regional scaleup support system. To increase the efficiency of the scaling support, the project’s Scaleup Labs focus on four specific industry verticals that benefit significantly from deep tech innovations: Smart Region, Health Sciences, Agile Manufacturing and AgTech. The five connecting startup ecosystems are: Berchtesgadener Land Wirtschaftsservice GmbH, UnternehmerTUM, JFDI GmbH/Pioneer, Pomurje Technology Park and Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia.

Berchtesgadener Land is the project coordinator and is experienced in the technical, financial and administrative management of national and international projects in innovation of technology and services. Lars Holstein and Olav Carlsen have national and international experience in coordinating extensive European projects, including eBusiness Lotse, SANSIBAS, F+I Netzwerk BayAut, G2Real, ESA BIC Bavaria, eMoticon and COOPERS. They are responsible for the coordination of the diverse consortium and its activities.
