The Programme

PwC* has forecast that UK GDP could be up to 10.3% higher in 2030 as a result of AI, the equivalent of an additional £232bn. As a fast-growing scale-up with a game-changing data solution powered by AI, then our new Scale programme can build your customer base faster. We connect you to our comprehensive network of industry leaders and decision makers to help you drive commercial growth. Launching in October 2018, applications are now open, so don't miss the opportunity!

The programme has three core components to scale your business. Our curated events give founders the opportunity to meet and pitch to an extended network of industry decision makers to drive commercial opportunities. Group masterclasses provide insights through a combination of PwC and industry experts, as well as learning from shared peer experiences. Individual support, including coaching, business support and other bespoke advice leaves your entire business fit to scale.
