The Scale Programme

Are you looking to grow and scale up your business? Then NextLevel’s Scale programme is right for you!

What does the Scale programme offer?

Do you have a great business model and want to scale up your start-up? Are you wondering about the best way to ramp up sales, optimise purchasing, secure the next round of financing, design your employee participation policy ...? The industry-specific Scale programmes from PwC can help. We spend eight to ten weeks working closely with you. During this period we find answers to the questions above and many others to help you overcome any obstacles to scaling up. First you get to know industry experts and benefit from our global network. And at our masterclasses we turn you into real professional pitchers before getting you together with investors and entrepreneurs. We also extend a cordial invitation to them to get involved in the Scale programme.

Timeline Scale programme (industry-specific priorities)

What do I get out of the programme?

Executive introductions
Meet our extensive client network of senior decision makers, budget holders and influencers, and identify collaborative opportunities.

Expert masterclasses
Increasing sales and achieving growth require insight and expertise. Our masterclasses use both to focus on making sure your business is fit for scale.

Commercial growth
Obtain introductions to potential industry pilots and partnerships, as well as support from PwC on technology implementation.

Fixed fee
While others might look to take equity in your business, we think a fixed fee is fairer to you. That means you keep more control of what you’ve built.
