Growth Camp


The Growth Camp is aimed at start-ups in their growth phase and aims to provide the most promising teams with individual support from experts and mentors to help with market expansion, upscaling of production and team development. Originally initiated as a presence format, the Growth Camp  will take place as a virtual program, and the individual modules will also address all relevant issues relating to the corona crisis.

WHAT_ The Growth Camp is aimed at start-ups in the growth phase with the aim of providing individual expert and mentoring* support for the most promising teams in market expansion, production scaling and team development.  

WHO_ Who can apply?

  • Start-ups with high scaling potential
  • Your product is on the market, you are already writing sales & have the power and the will to grow   
  • You plan to build your team further

Ideally, 2-3 people from your founder* or management team will have time to attend the individual modules of the camp. The contents of the camp are intensively focused on the personal development of founding teams or on strategic orientation and scaling.

The program is open to industry, with a special focus on the Growth Camp, which is dedicated to the promotion of projects dedicated to finding solutions to challenges in the Alpine region - more information on the Alpine Tech Innovation Focus here:

WHY_ In ongoing cooperation with start-ups and in exchange with international programme providers and players from the ecosystem, it is evident that start-ups need support in specific business areas in the early growth phase. On the basis of these findings, the 3-month format was developed in cooperation between the Werkstätte Wattens, I.E.C.T. - Hermann Hauser and the Standortagentur Tirol and is part of the Startup.Tirol Roadmap, the support programme for start-ups in Tyrol.

HOW_ The three-month program includes 5 fixed modules, which are held in the form of online sessions lasting several hours with coaches from the field. In addition, there are so-called flex modules, which can be attended according to interest and need. A further focus is on peer-2-peer learning, in that later-stage start-ups are networked with the Growth Camp teams and thus an exchange of ideas takes place. Each start-up has the opportunity to take advantage of 1:1 advice on specific topics. In addition, each team will have a selected mentor* from the industry for the duration of the program. For detailed program content see download below.

WHERE_ Online Sessions - the kick off and the final event are planned in Wattens - subject to the official measures concerning Covid-19
