What we're learning about scaling

We are committed to gathering learning and insights to contribute to the growing body of knowledge around the support that innovators require to scale within local innovation ecosystems. 

As the number of applicants and members of the Million Lives Club grows, we will look to use the data collected to generate insights on key questions such as:

  • What are the critical success factors for scaling different type of innovations?
  • What characterizes strong vs. weak innovation ecosystems?
  • How do we encourage greater gender balance across the entrepreneurship community?
  • How does grant funding help or hinder the growth of social enterprises?
  • What do resilient leaders who have achieved scale have in common? And what  elements of the ecosystems around them were most useful?
  • We would welcome contributions to this learning experience - if you would like to share questions or comments, please contact the Million Lives Club team.
