for late stage scaleups

Shine is for leaders that disrupt their industry. At this critical pre-IPO stage, founders and CEOs encounter complex challenges unique to their growth phase. In the Netherlands, only a select few have navigated this terrain. We facilitate connections with those trailblazers, offering peer-to-peer exchanges in a confidential setting, all protected by NDA.

Shine empowers transformative growth for your venture. Through small-scale, intimate sessions, engage in candid discussions on complex scaling issues with fellow leaders and industry experts. We curate the format and ensure a secure environment, enabling you to receive constructive feedback on your leadership and growth strategies.

Join the leaders transforming their industries
