Scale Up Fall Summit Anaheim: Where Leading Growing Firms Meet the Best Ideas

In a rapidly changing world, the leaders of tomorrow are those who invest today in learning and preparing for the future. Across industries, a universal trait of successful leaders is a life-long dedication to learning.

As uber-succesful entrepreneur Mark Cuban remarked on the source of his success,  “A guy with little computer background could compete with far more experienced guys, just because I put in the time to learn all I could.”

Finding the time to invest in continued learning can be difficult for leaders at growing businesses. With the needs of the scaling business owner in mind, the Scale Up Summit was created, aiming to give a year’s worth of executive education, as well as networking, in just two days.

Scale Up Summit is the leading opportunity for executives at scaling businesses to learn from thought leaders in areas like leadership, strategy, marketing, sales, operations, and finance.  

Scale Up Summit is an unparalleled opportunity to meet other leaders at today’s fastest growing mid-market firms ($5-500 Mil in Revenue).  This event also is home to the largest gathering of Align users.  Our CEO and senior leadership spend lots of time with executive teams getting feedback on how they are using Align to achieve their goals and improve communication throughout their organizations.  More importantly, our users share best practices on their implementation with each other. 

This year, we have been working behind the scenes on a really big and exciting project with Verne Harnish and the Scaling Up team which Verne will be announcing soon – so stay tuned for more info on that!

Scale Up Fall Summit 2019

Scale Up Fall Summit will be held on October 15-16, 2019 at the Marriott convention center in Anaheim, California. 

This year’s summit has a new feature; an optional third day, open to all regular attendees with Verne Harnish, author of Scaling Up and founder of the Scale Up Summit. This added day will give unique access to Verne’s knowledge on growing firms as well as access to the knowledge of other conference attendees experiencing the same growth in their businesses.  

During the regular session, over twenty authors, CEOs, and thought leaders in small business growth will share their research and experience with attendees. The knowledge shared represents a year’s worth of business book readings, condensed into an intense two days of learning. 

This years’ summit features some especially exciting speakers. Here are some of the speakers our team is especially looking forward to:
