Haskayne ScaleUp powered by CDL-Rockies

Filling a gap in the ecosystem by supporting scaling Canadian companies with building leadership and managerial capacity.

ScaleUp builds capacity for companies to compete globally

Scaling a high-growth company comes with unique challenges. Whether scaling for the first time or a seasoned veteran bringing along a relatively new team, these leaders are used to the day-to-day business execution and rarely have the space or time to test their critical assumptions and work “on” the business

The Haskayne ScaleUp program creates a customized environment for leadership teams of high-growth companies to work with mentors, all of whom have led and contributed to the growth of companies in various industries at a global scale.

ScaleUp pairs executive teams with mentors to work through curated content delivered by renowned facilitators. Its 12-week cadence enables optimal learning and effective use of time. The program is designed to fortify business foundations to withstand the pressures of growth at scale.

Each company will refine its growth strategies and build organizational capacity. The program experience will empower leaders to challenge their assumptions, engage in frank and constructive conversations, and enhance their personal accountability toward the team and business.
