You can submit your application for the upcoming edition of the PwC Startup Collider until December 10th 2017. The acceleration phase will kick off on 29 January 2018 and includes a 12-week-long program with 4 weekly sprints in Warsaw. During this period, PwC experts and external mentors from various industries will support selected startups and assist them in making improvements and gaining new clients. At this stage, training and workshops are also planned to improve the start-up business models.
The aim is to develop and rocket the startups’ operations, resulting in commercialization, internationalization and sales of the startups’ solutions to external clients or within PwC’s product portfolio, not only within the CEE region but globally as well.
PwC is looking for B2B or B2B2C startups with products or services from the area of digitization and new technologies (Big Data Analytics, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Customer Experience, Cyber Security, Tax Digitization).
"The previous edition of our program has confirmed there are many interesting start-ups with huge business potential in Poland and the entire region of Central and Eastern Europe. Startup Collider helps these startups develop and tap into that potential. The program is part of the PwC program, whose goal is to build social trust and solve key problems", says Jolanta Kokosińska, PwC partner.
By leveraging PwC’s assets, such as know-how, resources and global network of contacts, Startup Collider is able to help startups go global and expand PwC’s product portfolio bringing additional value to its’ clients seeking innovative, effective solutions to their business issues, therefore introducing PwC to the new dimension of services, what hasn’t been available for PwC to date.
The first edition of PwC Startup Collider was targeted to startups in the fintech area, with 13 companies having been selected for acceleration.
