The Scale programme in detail

02 January, 2019

A good training programme is one that is tailored to participants’ needs. So there isn’t one Scale programme for everyone, but a range of different programmes depending on the industry you work in. The focus of the first programme will be startups working in the Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals sector.

Scale programme for start-ups


We understand that you have a business to run, therefore the time commitment over the course of the programme is designed with that in mind: over the eight-week programme there are four events where ten masterclasses and the evening events with the investors and corporates take place.

Benefits of the programme for start-ups

Access to corporates

Meet our extensive client network of decision-makers and influencers and identify opportunities for cooperation.


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

Access to our network

Fast growth is about people as much as it is about knowledge. We can give you direct access to PwC’s industry-leading experience, our client relationship owners and our SME focused products and services.

Affordable one-off 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.

Scale programme for investors

We know you’re always on the lookout for the next investment opportunity, but it takes time to sift through investment pitches and proposals. The companies you'll meet on Scale have been through a rigorous pre-screening process. Our focus is to put only those with real potential in front of you.
