ESCP Option E Scale Up Program

December 21, 2020

ESCP Business School announced a 10-week long Option E Scale Up Project where scale up companies benefit from the opportunities ESCP offers. During 10 weeks, selected scale ups will be provided with a team of 5 students in their last year of the Master in Management at ESCP Business School as interns.

Option E Scale Up Project aims to support organizations in their search for possible ways to scale their business sustainably by at least one order of magnitude (x10 revenue and x5 profit)

The structure of the project is started with Scale up Strategy Plan where you decide on the pathway through recommendations backed up by evidence of best practices scale ups and experimentation with the ultimate objective of x10 revenue and x5 profit. It will be followed by sales & growth hacking plan, product/service review, strategy & business plan review, and organization & financial model review. These stations are all significant to achieve the value proposition of the program so they will be meticulously designed. The project will start in mid-January and will be finished by late March. The team (consisting of 5 master students in their last year) will commit around 300-400 hours of work spread during the period.

If you are a company that has successfully managed to launch a value proposition (product or service) and validated that it solves a problem and that there is a sizeable market for it, then you can apply. Thus, your company must have revenue and profitability -at least at the gross margin level. Note that there is no restriction applied in terms of industry or type of business.

If you feel that you fulfill the requirements, you can write an email NOT later than the 21st of December to:

Prof. Davide Sola (

Note that the project is FREE of charge!

Besides, if you are happy with the outcomes, it is still possible for you to make a small donation to the school which will go towards scholarships.
