Local scale-ups to benefit from partnership programme image

Some of the brightest scale-ups disrupting the region have been identified and are undertaking the 10-week programme, helping them to raise their profiles, identify commercial opportunities and prepare for growth. The programme, taking place in Birmingham, will introduce the companies to potential customers, decision-makers, and thought leaders in their field who could advise, mentor, or partner with their business.

Participants in the programme will undertake a business development curriculum and receive advice from entrepreneurs and experts on topics such as leadership, operational growth, investor readiness, sales and marketing, as well as how boards view and strategise.

The programme will culminate in an Executive Evening on 19 June, the programme’s corporate pitching event, where the cohort will present to PwC and WMGC’s network of senior executives, industry thought leaders and decision-makers.

Since launching in 2017, PwC’s Scale programmes have supported over 240 scale-ups to grow through various sector/regional focused groups. These programmes presented opportunities for scale-ups to connect with over 2000 corporate executives to enable over 3000 introductions. The alumni companies on the programme have a combined valuation of over £1bn.
