Personal Coaching

Often scale-ups and startups have to overcome difficult challenges when growing and internationalizing. These difficulties such as developing business leaders with the ability to manage rapid growth or attracting appropriate growth capital especially in new markets are always hard to manage. Therefore, we want to help these businesses to become more successful on a larger scale, help them to forge links and overcome hurdles in target markets. The BeUp-project by the EU supports us to do exactly this and thus to support you.

Selected startups will receive personal 1-on-1 business coaching on all relevant topics regarding internationalization and business development. The coaching sessions will be held by top-notch trainers in the field of scaling-up businesses. Since the sessions are individualized on the state and demands of every single startup the sessions can be shaped very efficiently for attending startups. And as the coaches are experts on the markets of EU, Israel, UK and the US it possible to focus not only on Israel. All 1-on-1 coaching sessions will take place on September 4th and 5th in Tel Aviv.
