The Programme

Following the success of the first Scale | Yorkshire programme we are launching our second programme. This year, we have teamed up with Stuart Clarke, a well-known and well respected figure in the Leeds tech ecosystem to develop and run the programme for 10 ambitious tech businesses. Our 10 week programme is specifically tailored for later stage companies with validated products, finance and scalability, looking to grow and tap into our resources and corporate client network.

Through its three core components, we provide the tools enabling you to effectively and efficiently scale your business. Our curated events give founders the opportunity to meet and pitch to the PwC extended network of industry decision-makers, expanding your commercial opportunities. Group masterclasses provide valuable insights through a combination of PwC and industry experts, as well as learning from shared peer experiences. Finally, individual bespoke counsel including coaching and business support leaves your entire business fit to scale.
