About The Scale-Able Project

SCALE-ABLE is a new project designed to establish a sustainable service that empowers scalable companies to enhance their growth potential through corporate collaborations. Its objective is to unlock the underused potential that can be achieved through cross-border systematic matchmaking and collaboration between corporations and scaling technology companies from Estonia, Finland, and Sweden.

The project consists of four workshops and tailored matchmaking events that will be held across the participating countries. The unique matchmaking method developed by Ignite Sweden will be utilized to align companies.

The SCALE-ABLE project is driven by Ignite Sweden, Norrköping Science Park, and SISP – Swedish Incubators and Science Parks (Sweden), Tehnopol (Estonia), and Business Turku (Finland). This 2.5-year project is funded by the European Union’s Central Baltic Interreg Programme 2021–2027.
