Creating future ventures

Our economy and society are undergoing unprecedented change. Increasing importance is being attached to digital business models that deliver a sustainable impact. Start-ups, in particular that use innovative technical solutions to break up traditional business fields and open up new ones, and therefore contribute to sustainable change, are becoming increasingly important within our economy and society.

Scale Now GmbH was founded in 2022 with a view to building up precisely these innovative, forward-looking start-ups and establishing them on the market, as well as supporting family offices in identifying profitable and sustainable investments.

As a venture builder, we combine advisory and investment to provide our portfolio start-ups with expertise and liquidity for optimal growth opportunities. Thanks to our high-calibre network, we connect the right minds at any given time. Our interdisciplinary team, based in Essen and Berlin, is made up of accomplished experts from the core areas Finance, Tech, Sales, HR and Communication.

Business Model

Venture building at eye level

We are not a classic venture builder aiming for a quick exit. We focus on fair cooperation and collaboration at eye level. We attach importance to building companies that are a sustainable investment in the future for all of us. Therefore, we focus on medium to long-term investments.
