Do you resonate with either of these problems?

Scaling is difficult for startups
70% of startups fail because of premature scaling and lack of funding & market knowledge

Researchers often lack the necessary business knowledge and skills to bring their innovations to the market

Innovation managers and knowledge transfer officers are often overwhelmed

What our clients say about us

iScale Hub provided great support to our alumni during our Bootcamp. Their task was to prepare the startups for their international expansion and help them in fundraising. The workshops were value-focused and well presented, and they helped the attendees to understand the key concepts. The mentoring sessions were tailor-made but also encouraged peer-to-peer learning if it was possible. They created strong connections with the teams, everyone could approach them with questions openly and freely – even after the programme. Both, the students, and the organisers were happy with the performance iScaleHub, therefore I strongly recommend them for similar initiatives.

What our clients say about us

We had a professional and practical B2B sales workshop with Tamas, that although was on Zoom, he delivered best practices, kept the audience fully engaged, and had excellent feedback from the researchers and PhDs of Technion.

Maayan Hagar

Director at Technion Hub for Entrepreneurship & Innovation Hub (Technion – Israel Institute of Technology)


What our clients say about us

The seminar on ‘How to design an effective sales process for B2B sales’ was very informative and provided valuable insights for startups at different stages. The practical advice provided was also very useful and it was clear that many of the attendees were able to put it into practice. Overall, I would highly recommend this seminar to anyone looking to improve their B2B sales process.

What our clients say about us

iScale Hub helped us to educate our researchers about entrepreneurship in a way that was specifically designed for people from science-heavy backgrounds. We later decided to involve the knowledge transfer office as actually, the officers could benefit a lot from understanding more about this segment of innovation management, especially in sales and corporate collaboration strategies..

Matej Rus

CEO of PODIM | Lecturer | University of Maribor



What our clients say about us

Gergő was a guest lecturer during the Summer School “Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity” organised by the Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism – University of Split. He was working closely with the teams and shared his insights from the start-up community, guiding students through the process of establishing and running a start-up, developing strategic mindset, networking, and raising capital and pitching the project. His great strength is explaining complex issues in a simple way backed by real life examples. With his knowledge, experience, network and enthusiasm for entrepreneurship, he can help any start-up in different stages of their journey. He is a structured thinker and pragmatic communicator, well suited to working with entrepreneurs from various backgrounds.

Vlatka Skokic

Professor, University of Split



What our clients say about us

I highly recommend Tamas as a startup mentor. He recently gave several masterclasses for my company, Demium, and his insights on international expansion, fundraising, market analysis, and go-to-market strategy were invaluable. Tamas is also a great mentor and his guidance has helped many startups achieve their goals. Tamas has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the sales field and I have no doubt that he will be an asset to any team or organization.

Diogo Patão

Business Operations, Director of Entrepreneurship Programs at Demium



What our clients say about us

Gergő was a mentor for DeepTrait, a deep tech startup I co-founded. Getting things right for deep tech is extremely challenging: the conventional tools for a market size estimate do not work, the business model is often fuzzy, and the textbook examples of business development fall apart. Gergő is among the few business consultants who can work in such ambiguity. He helped us put the business strategy together from scratch when the templates did not fit our company and suggested the way forward from strategic planning and execution standpoints.

Sergeii Shelpuk

CEO at Deeptrait



What our clients say about us

Tamas gave us excellent advice and comments on how to get funding from foreign venture capitals and how to expand to international markets. He was very helpful and we are improving our work according to his suggestions.

What our clients say about us

Credible and trustworthy strategic consultant with a broad investor and B2B network. He provided great help and outstanding support in our UK expansion – thanks to him we could get term sheets and raise within a very short timeframe.
