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?

The Scale Programme is a 10-week programme in close cooperation with our experts. In our masterclasses, we make you fit for current and future challenges. In addition, we connect you with our international network of companies and potential cooperation partners.

The criteria of participation: You have a revenue-generating B2B product.

Your Invest: While others may take company shares, we think that a fixed fee is fairer for you. That means you remain in control of what you have created. In short, this is an exciting opportunity. For both of us.

“Startups offer innovation and are looking for market access. Corporates, on the other hand, offer market access but are looking for more innovation. We, at PwC, build the bridge and bring both together.”

Florian Nöll, Head of Digital Ecosystems
