PwC are excited to announce that our 4th Scale | FinTech programme is now open for applications!
Scale | FinTech is a 10 week programme that supports our mission to unite FinTechs with Financial Services leaders to drive innovation across the industry. The programme brings together a cohort of fast growth FinTechs that are solving some of the Financial Services industry's most pressing challenges, and provides a programme of support focused on accelerating growth.
Why should you apply?
The programme has 3 core components which are founded on our experience of running over 40 different Scale Programmes across all industries and working with over 400 scale-ups across the UK. The 3 core components are:
- training masterclasses that provide the insights and tools you need to grow, delivered by our group of experts from inside and outside the firm;
- 1:1 support including bespoke sales coaching, engagement with senior PwC stakeholders who have experience relevant to your proposition, and opportunities to explore collaboration with PwC; and
- access to industry decision makers and budget holders at curated events that give founders the opportunity to pitch to PwC's extended network of corporate clients.
The programme is designed to be both time and cost effective, and to give the maximum return for those that fully engage.
Who should apply?
The programme is suitable for product ready, revenue generating B2B scale-ups that are targeting the Financial Services sector and looking to scale. We welcome applications from FinTechs across the globe, and although not critical we are particularly interested in FinTechs in the payments, compliance and data spaces.
The application process involves a simple online form, followed by an interview for those FinTechs that are shortlisted. Note that due to the bespoke nature of the Programme, we only take a maximum of 12 FinTechs into the programme. The programme will then commence in October 2020. There is a fixed fee of £7.5k to take part in the programme, which alumni testify is great value.
What have our alumni said?
“Scale in particular has been of immense value for InvestSuite via coaching, guiding and mentoring; providing top notch tailored courses like Funding, Scaling, etc. geared towards scale-ups; legal assistance; and most crucially, access to PwC’s immense network. The key highlight for InvestSuite has been its first implementation in the emerging markets, where PwC UK and PwC ME conceptualised the partnership with a Middle East banking partner and is now program managing the implementation. Once live later in 2020, the digital robo-advisory solution will be the first of its kind in the Middle East region.” Investsuite CEO - Scale FinTech 2019 Alumni
