The goal of SCALE-ABLE project is to develop a sustainable and potentially ongoing service for the scalable companies to increase their growth potential through corporate collaborations.

The common cross-border challenge tackled by SCALE-ABLE is related to the underused potential that can be achieved through the systematic matchmaking of regional corporations and scaling technology companies of Estonia, Finland & Sweden.

SCALE-ABLE opens Ignite Sweden network to Estonian, Finnish and Swedish companies. Project sets up a framework and raises the awareness of corporates and scaleups, pre-validates the companies for perfect match, matchmakes the companies to establish collaboration, supervises the collaborations till success.

Within 30 months the project designs a proven and repeatable system for empowering scaleup-corporate collaboration. The workshops and tailored matchmaking events will be held across the participating countries of Estonia, Finland and Sweden. The lead role of the activities related to matchmaking events to establish scaleup-corporate collaborations is taken by SISP Swedish Incubators and Science Parks and Ignite Sweden. The project is co-funded by EU and will cover travelling and matchmaking costs for scaleups (1 person per scaleup).

The main beneficiaries are scaling small & medium enterprises (SMEs), corporations and business support organisations  capable to establish the repeatable system for matchmaking and cross-border collaborations.

The project SCALE-ABLE will result in  20-25 documented commercial collaboration started between the scaling companies and corporations (e.g. joint product or service development, conducted investment, direct sales to corporations, new markets entered via corporations). 

The project duration is 30 months starting from 1st of April 2023 and containing 4 matchmaking tracks.

The 2.5-year project is funded by Central Baltic Interreg Programme 2021–2027.
