Tell us more about ScalePoynt
ScalePoynt is a managed services partner in Toronto, Ontario, focused exclusively on hands-on execution of specialty roles needed by early-stage SaaS startups.
We have a 2‑sided model to work with both Pre-Seed and Seed stage ventures, as well as their VC investors. For founders, we provide long-term talent and repeatable rollout models for AWS cloud, security, and GTM strategies to ensure they get to market quickly. For VCs, we help them better assess venture operating diligence so they can make investment decisions; and immediately following capital injections, help founders rapidly scale up on a moment’s notice in our 3 specialty areas.
ScalePoynt has is currently staffed with 15 people and has doubled its headcount in the previous year.
What is ScalePoynt’s focus?
We believe there is a better way to build and invest in startups.
Despite the millions of startups created to date, most founders feel like they’re the first person to figure out how to actually build their idea into a scalable business.
At ScalePoynt, we know this burden on founders can be reduced, and many areas they try to staff themselves can be best executed by partner experts in a repeatable manner.
Startups should succeed or fail based on the value of their product — not whether they can build the operating infrastructure to get their idea to market fast enough.
