For entrepreneurial activity to translate into economic growth, entrepreneurship education needs to focus less on the “start” and “small” side of things and more on how companies of all ages, sizes and sectors scale. After all, the company founders and successful entrepreneurs that we know today are famous not because they started but because they scaled. A scaleup can be described as any organisation that is undergoing rapid growth. Most businesses are surprised to see that past practices do not work well when going from 1x to 2x and 3x.
