Scale-up Program


We want to help foster extraordinary talent.


We believe that no problem is too big that technology can't solve. Our Scale-up Program creates the perfect marriage between outstanding technical talent and burning platform industry problems. 

You’ve done the hard work, validated a solution all you need now is the breath to give it life. We exist to give you the commercial acumen to take your tech solution from great to exceptional.

Solve big problems using technology solutions.

For us to help scale up your technology solution it must be solving the big issues we’re facing. We will only engage in a business if we think that we can add significant value and help optimise that growth potential. 

We’re flipping the traditional model.

We’re not taking a tech solution and trying to get it to the market through sales pitches. We’re trying to solve existing industry problems and looking for technology leaders who are sitting on, and working with, great tech solutions already.


How do we help you scale-up?

We help you access the right knowledge, create new opportunities, grow your networks (and customers), and build brand awareness. How? By giving you access to a comprehensive range of tailored services including business development, sales, PR, talent recruitment, HR, marketing and digital agency service.


How it works


The CDH Scale-up Program addresses a gap in the ecosystem with services that target the areas where businesses most need support.

Participants are chosen based on their ability to produce real investment outcomes and local jobs creation, and only when we're confident that our own involvement will really help. 



The Scale-up Program has been created for companies with an existing product that has demonstrable traction. Companies can be based in Australia or anywhere in the world. Applications are currently closed, but if you register your interest we'll notify you when the next intake is open for applications.



Applications will be reviewed by a panel of industry and investment experts and a cohort of companies will be selected for the program. 



We recognise that every company is different, so we tailor our services to each company's unique needs. The CDH Scale-up Program turns weaknesses into strengths through deployed services, maximising partnership and investment opportunities, and de-risking your company to deliver results.


Post Program

Support continues after the completion of the program with introductions to potential investors, corporate partners and customers. Participants will be invited to various networking events within the growing Cremorne startup community and streamlined access to future talent pipelines.
