Scale Up, at its very core, aims to advance inclusive economic prosperity in

Milwaukee using entrepreneurial growth as a catalyst for economic development.

By working directly with ambitious entrepreneurs, Scale Up Milwaukee helps

companies grow, accelerating the environment that  makes growth a core,

self-sustaining part of the fabric of Milwaukee.


Scale Up Milwaukee demonstrates that our regional assets can be galvanized to

recapture the economic vigor and realize the growth potential of the  region’s

entrepreneurial companies, positively impacting job growth, the tax base, personal

wealth, and quality of life. The social and economic benefits run throughout the

community; already 57 Scalerator graduate companies have hired over 600

employees. Using Babson College Professor Dan Isenberg’s groundbreaking

research on growth-oriented entrepreneurship, Scale Up Milwaukee convenes

a diverse group of stakeholders, including private sector leaders, public officials, investors, entrepreneurs, university faculty, and local economic development support groups, to develop actionable strategies for high-growth, high-impact entrepreneurship in the region.
