Scale | Retail (2022)

Meet Our #Tech Scale-Ups

Our 2022 PwC Scale | Retail cohort has launched and we’re excited to be working with our chosen scale-ups to help solve the important problems of today. The programme is focused on Tech or Tech-enabled scale-ups that have solutions for a broad range of sectors within the UK and internationally, and builds on the success of the previous versions run over the last four years. Having assessed over 500 tech companies, we are excited to be working with our cohort of 14, picked to join our twelve week programme for 2022.

What is PwC Scale?

The programme is delivered in collaboration with GrowthBuilders over eight weeks, and is designed to facilitate collaboration between established leaders of industry and high growth tech scale-ups, to drive co-creation, partnerships and tap into new ways of enabling profitability, growth and innovation. 

During the programme the cohort will benefit from a world class business curriculum designed to build fast growth, long lasting businesses, covering topics such as sales and marketing, operational growth, fundraising, and leading through growth. They also gain access to experts from across PwC's technology practice. The programme concludes with the Scale | FinTech Executive Events, where the cohort will pitch to industry leaders from PwC’s network on the following dates:

9th & 14th June - Retail Pitch (7 different scale-ups per event)
