Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost for taking part in Circklo’s Scale-up Configurator programme?

The costs of the programme are sponsored by Circklo, but you need to be a current Circklo member to participate. Circklo takes a 5% success fee of any funds raised via the programme.

Are there Mentors? And who are they?

We have over 30 mentors and coaches. These are a mix of investors, hedge fund managers, VCs, multinational executives, and subject matter experts. See the team

How are the programmes conducted?

Every week, you will benefit of two-online sessions, each lasting approximately one hour. In addition to  these, we estimate that you will also need around two hours of self-study to complete the tasks related to each week.

We strongly recommend that you take full advantage of both the online sessions, as well as the various exercises and tasks assigned to you. They are critical to your efforts to scale up your business and expand your pool of suitable investors.
