PwC Scale | Excellence through AI

What is PwC’s Scale Programme all about?

Our Scale Programme supports AI-driven startups focused on sales and service excellence and internal process excellence. We help startups accelerate their growth by giving them access to our network of experts and connections.

What do both of our programmes entail?

  • The AI Sales and Service Excellence track is dedicated to AI-driven solutions in customer service and engagement, customer experience and strategy, customer analytics, pricing and sales

  • The AI Internal Process Excellence track focuses on AI-driven solutions in workplace productivity and collaboration, document automation and writing, IT and data management, workforce and operational efficiency. 

This programme was crafted to bring together industry leaders and AI-driven startups to foster innovation. Whether you're looking to address challenges related to scaling or to connect with leading corporations, potential clients or partners, the Scale programme is right for you.

The programme will kick off in April 2024.

Participation requirements

  • Tech startups harnessing AI for Service and Sales as well as Internal Process Excellence

  • Validated B2B solutions: tested by users and/or sold to clients

  • International ambitions

  • Close to series A funding or beyond

  • Willing to pay a fee. Rather than taking company shares, we think a fixed fee is fairer for you: you remain in control of what you’ve created.
