mentors, advisors and Silicon Valley gurus

The people behind the program are the real value of SCALEit. They make all the difference! Without them, we wouldn’t be able to build the program we have. The SCALEit team is a combination of local experts and danes - making it all happen in the Silicon Valley. If you as a company are involved with SCALEit, these are some of the accomplished individuals you will get to meet and work with.
