How do companies handle rapid growth? Round2Lab is a platform and program addressing the challenges young companies face when scaling up their business. Isabella Hermann-Schön, Jan Hillered and Christian Czernich launched “Round2Cap” in early 2017, providing a financing alternative for companies that generate rapid growth and intend to expand their enterprises, so called „Gazelle“ companies.
Spending a vast amount of time with entrepreneurs they quickly realized that financing is not the only issue those companies are confronted with. Round2Lab therefore provides a platform that discusses the political-economic environment in which Gazelles are operating. Current discourse focuses strongly on Start-Ups, turning its back on ventures that have proven to provide job opportunities and economic growth.
We work with a close network of initiatives, institutions and stakeholders that focus on the advancement of the ecosystem surrounding Gazelles in Austria to establish a platform for entrepreneurs who seek support in managing their growth. The Round2Lab Program will be launched in September 2017, providing a four month program for entrepreneurs to approach the issue of rapid growth from various directions.
