Scaleup research

Our research on fast-growing companies

Scaleups play a crucial role in the Dutch economy; not only do they contribute to new business activities and job creation, but they also introduce innovation on the market. This outstanding performance requires researchers to focus on scaleups and investigate how they can achieve such a high growth and impact. With our scaleup research projects, we analyse fast-growing companies to look for their growth formula and how to measure it. In this way, we develop a set indicators that serve as a basis for impactful policy and as an inspiration for other SMEs with growth ambitions.

Startups & scaleups in your region

We work closely with municipalities, provinces and other (regional) authorities to generate practical insights into scaleups and their growing path. We research the development of scaleups and their relationship with the innovation ecosystem. In this way, we can advise them on how to recreate the conducive environment that allows for local SMEs to be able to scale up, generating innovation and creating new jobs.
