PwC's Scale | FinTech programme

Bridging the gap between the start-up ecosystem and corporate world to accelerate change and innovation

What does the Scale | FinTech programme offer?

The programme has been designed to bring together Financial Services industry leaders and FinTech start-ups to drive innovation in the market. Whether you’re looking to be connected with leading corporates, potential clients and partners, or to increase your knowledge to be able to tackle different challenges when scaling, the Scale programme is just for you.

Participation criteria

"We’ve gained a great understanding of the industry, and how to approach it with our offering. The networking’s great; with other participants, with whom we have very open and frank discussions, with the corporates we meet via the PwC Scale programme and with PwC experts. There’s so much you can get out of the programme, but you’ve got to put the effort in too. I would certainly recommend it as a great boost for any start-up.”
