Europe’s 25 Corporate Startup Stars winner connects innovators and clients to drive economic growth

From start-up businesses to seasoned entrepreneurs, PwC prides itself on connecting innovative ideas and disruptive solutions to clients and investors.

Using its global network of 120,000 people, PwC spends considerable time supporting and collaborating with start-up businesses by running or contributing to a variety of mentoring, accelerator and incubator programs. For example, PwC’s accelerator connected one tech start-up with a leading UK bank resulting in a pilot opportunity to trial the technology.

PwC's free website – Startup Journey – delivers practical advice and guidance on setting up a new business. With an impressive internal crowdsourcing platform, rewarding staff for identifying new business opportunities, PwC also supports internal innovation.
