"I brought my industry experience to the table helping startups monetize their innovative products. In return I was taken to the fascinating world of AI and chatbots. PwC Startup Collider is about improvement, passion and determination of both Mentee and Mentor. The relationship is reciprocal, based on giving and receiving. Challenging but rewarding! I am proud to be a part of the Program!”
 

Anna Maj, FinTech expert,  Mentor in 1st cohort of Startup Collider.

"Being a part of the first edition of PwC’s Collider we didn’t know much what to expect. After several months of participation in Fast Track part of the program we can definitely say that PWC is a great partner to work on business models and business cases for our potential clients. Their 360 degrees expertise pointed to the areas we never thought of. It is truly remarkable that we got quite a lot of support also from Partners at PwC – their involvement showed us how Collider is important for PWC. We are sure that we will stay in touch after the program itself and will grow our future together with PwC."   
 

Julian Kozankiewicz, NoaTech, 1st cohort of Startup Collider. 

"Participation in the Startup Collider was a great experience and a chance to learn how PwC works on complex business cases. It was also a big opportunity to meet fantastic people: mentors, experts and other start-upers." 
 

Maciej Kostro, finAPI, 1st cohort of Startup Collider. 

"The Startup Collider programme is a great occasion to build a bridge between consulting business and startup community. Thanks to this initiative both sides may exchange what they have best: wide expertise (financial, legal, technical etc.) and multi sector knowledge from consulting, fresh business models and technological orientation from startups."
 

Michał Kliś, PwC Geolocalization services manager, Mentor in 1st cohort of Startup Collider.

"It was a great pleasure to be part of the team. Specialy that pricing is key success factor for startups. Startup’s pricing strategies must be explicit. They should decide which strategy to pursue, and align sales, marketing, product and engineering efforts along those lines. I tried to poll executive teams to prioritize revenue growth, volume growth, profit generation, and market share to ensure the company’s pricing strategy is consistent with the goals of the team."
 

Maciej Kraus, PwC Strategy & Operations Director, Mentor in the 1st cohort of Startup Collider.
