Before making its selection, the cohort will have a combination of focussed classroom style sessions with industry professionals that cover core competencies of running a successful scaleup and work with dedicated coaches who will help each company with their specific challenges. “It is our intention that even if the companies do not make it through to the investment round, that they would have benefited from our programme and be able to build their businesses and strategise as founders of scaleups,” Tay adds
