Strategies for scaling up
What is scaling up for a social entreprise? What are the different strategies?
This guide aims at helping project leaders to discover the different strategies that can allow the project to scale up and anticipate the consequences of each of them. It also gives some advice and an overview of the different bottlenecks and opportunities that come with each strategy.
From diversification to cooperation, including duplication, fertilisation and merging, this guide describes each strategy and their success factors.
Produced by Avise, it is based on a wide range of exchanges with some fifty people in the sector, including experts, social enterprise leaders, heads of sector networks, support bodies and funders.

- Making a success of the process : at three levels: the human level (leaders and teams), the organisational level (the structure) and the ecosystem level (the local area and its resources).
