So, quite the list of characteristics needed to allow a company to grow successfully.
As soon as a company reaches the scale-up phase, it is faced with a whole new set of challenges that require a new kind of leadership skills. The three most important skills to excel at are: (1) being visionary and ‘making big bets’; (2) stimulating high performance; and (3) situational leadership.

The goal is to combine regional forces and start-ups and scale-ups in an effective and efficient way. In this way the government hopes to obtain a top 5 position in the world for the Dutch start-up and scale-up ecosystem. By facilitating proven successful regional programmes, they have a national effect, thereby strengthening the Netherlands’ competitive and innovative position.
