Business growth: time to scale-up
Business growth is hard as it is. Scaling up your business is not an easy phase. There is quite a difference between a company that grows and a company that is ready to scale-up. If you grow your business gradually it becomes bigger in stages. It can mean more customers, more office space, more staff and more challenges. Scaling up is about taking your company to the next level.
The growth of your company will not go up in a straight line, it grows in all directions. With good targets and a business growth plan you can manage the process. And for example by, hiring the right professionals, controlling the costs, create focus and enough funding.
Business growth opportunities
The first step for a scaleup in the making is to identify your business growth opportunities. You can do that by doing market research: ask yourself in which countries or segments you want to operate. And which new products you aim to develop by doing Research & Development. Analyse the market, find your competitors are. And make a strategy for your company.
Business growth funding
To finance your scaleup plans, you might need funding. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency offers different funding options for your business plans. For example, tax credits for research and development. Find out more about the subsidies and programmes and your best options in our subsidy guide.
