Scale-Up Programmes

Think Big

Aims to build a more entrepreneurial and digital future for Europe. It gives young people the training, support and money they need to get creative: the space to turn their ideas into actions, learn new skills and create projects – and even to fail. Think Big splits into Think Big Schools and Think Big Youth Programmes.

Success for the programme can be seen in network effects, and access to finance and mentoring. Students were asked to rate their skills across a series of skills-specific statements pre-and post-programme. In all competencies – self-confidence, project management, communication, creativity and digital literacy – they believed that they had improved.

This programme is associated with Recommendation 5 of the Scale-Up Report.

If you know any national or local scaleup programmes that you want to recommend as a potential case study for the Institute to consider please do get in touch:
