The Scalewise story, thus far


We help ambitious tech scale-ups accelerate growth by providing unique access to a community of world-class Scale Experts. 

My name is Tom. I’m one third of the trio who founded Scalewise in early 2020. The other two co-founders are Gavin (VP Sales extraordinaire) and Karen (L&D expert).
Myself and Gavin spent over a decade in revenue leadership roles within VC-backed businesses and as a result, have an intimate understanding of the opportunities and challenges of scaling at pace. 

One such challenge was how to continuously develop ourselves and our teams in a rapidly changing world. In 2018 I set out to solve this problem for myself and other revenue leaders in London by creating the second chapter of Pavilion

Pavilion is a community for senior revenue leaders working in fast-growth tech businesses to share knowledge, discuss best practices and offer support to one another. The London chapter now contains over 500 talented members and the global community has since grown to over 6,000 revenue leaders and 50 chapters around the world.

The incredible expertise that exists within Pavilion is what inspired the creation of Scalewise. We saw a huge opportunity to help scaling SaaS businesses.

Cue the birth of Scalewise

We’ve embarked on a mission to harness the knowledge and experience within our network to help ambitious tech companies scale in the right way. 

Combining our first-hand knowledge of what it takes to scale successfully with our unique network of world-class talent, meant that we were perfectly placed to build a platform to provide flexible and affordable access to seasoned revenue operators.
