PwC and London Borough of Newham launch Scale | GovTech programme

Nigel Howlett, UK digital private business leader at PwC, commented: “With our huge network and specialist skills, PwC is ideally placed to do this and we’re helping break down the barriers that can prevent collaboration even getting off the ground, whether that’s the inexperience of startups or the complexity of government and the public sector.”

Previous participants in PwC’s scale-up programmes collectively raised £295 million in equity on joining and have since been valued at $1bn, demonstrating rapid progression and quality. As well as investment, the cohorts received 1700 introductions to over 800 relevant executive stakeholders driving commercial opportunities for both parties.
