Testimonials from startups

“With our European expansion in the planning stages, PwC’s Scale programme for PropTech came at exactly the right time; we’re looking for large partners and corporates to help us scale into new markets. The programme covered a lot of elements and ticked all the boxes of what we were looking for. It was especially useful to see how we needed to tweak our pitch to make sure we get the attention of our target audience. The Masterclasses were of particular interest, rather than taking a generic approach, the presenters clearly took time to understand the businesses of all participants and answer our precise concerns, which made them an invaluable exercise.”

Kris Riise, Founder, Unloc

Hanna Sjöström, CEO, GPX Medical AB

“Having attended quite a number of accelerator programmes, it was refreshing to find one that specifically addressed the PropTech industry and understood the needs of real estate developers. The external experts PwC invited to be part of the experience provided additional value. Having to attend the programme virtually due to COVID-19 actually proved to be an added value in itself - and it was managed very successfully by PwC. It showed us that you don’t have to be physically present in a location to be able to connect with people and do business, it inspired us to take an international step much more quickly than we’d anticipated. We’ve already launched 20 actions in different countries, in which we’ve no physical presence.”

Jennick Scheerlinck, Founder & CEO, Hoplr

Hanna Sjöström, CEO, GPX Medical AB

“I heard of the Scale programme last year, but we weren’t yet of a size that we could be considered a scale-up. I knew that as soon as we were, it would be a good fit for us and, backed by the PwC brand, the quality of the corporates and investors it attracted would be top notch. It was incredibly useful to get feedback on our products and to connect with the PwC network and other start-ups taking part in the programme. I really appreciate that even though the programme is officially over, we’re still in touch with PwC and exploring opportunities for the future.”

Miguel Linera Alperi, Founder & CEO, Arextech

Testimonials from corporates

“With so many start-ups in the world, it can be hard for companies looking for fresh ideas that may be of use to their business to know where to begin. At PwC’s Scale programme  - PropTech Executive event, companies were preselected, which made it a very efficient way to meet them. As they had also already been coached on how best to get their business idea across in a short timeframe and in a way that invited those possibly interested in their product or service to contact them for more detail, the evening was very useful. All in all, it was a well orchestrated event that was a win, win, win for everyone involved.”

Marc Decorte - President Brussels Chamber of Commerce & Industry (BECI)

“As a real-estate operator, we specialise in offering office buildings, meeting centres and coworking spaces that are sustainable in terms of architecture, location and respect for the environment. That means we’re always looking for new ideas and concepts to extend our service offerings or streamline processes. Attending the Executive event of PwC’s Scale programme at which seven start-ups active in PropTech pitched proved to be a very efficient way of seeing what’s new and upcoming in the market. Out of the seven, three are of potential interest to us and we’re following them up. I find it inspiring that PwC, which has a reputation for serving big brands, is also supporting new businesses and helping connect them with potential clients and partners.”
