Programme benefits


#PwCNetwork

We help you network with more than 3,000 PwC Russia clients.

#EquityFree

Participation in the Programme is free of charge. PwC will not seek to acquire equity or be granted co-founder status in the company. A grant will be provided to create a proof of concept and enable participants to focus on work during the Programme.

#Acceleration

The Programme provides assistance in building up a client base and entering global markets. Support is given throughout the cycle, from piloting to sales. The main focus is to help participants develop their businesses rather than train in entrepreneurship.

#TopMentors

We connect you with leading experts and mentors from PwC — a global consulting and assurance business leader — as well as with access to top corporate innovation teams and our deep network of investors.

#Partnership

PwC may offer partnerships to selected startup teams that achieve certain KPIs. These partnerships could come in various forms (e.g., revenue sharing, licensing, subcontracting, white label).

#Investment

Post-programme investing options are available, including up to USD 2 million from YellowRockets.vc, Demo Day exposure and other investor connections.

Participation criteria: who we are looking for

Ambitious team

The company is managed by at least two founders, covering both business and technology competencies.

Market-ready solution

The product is market ready, validated at least through pilots (even better if you already have live users and/or corporate partners). A new and scalable technology or innovative business model is being applied. Priority is given to startups with sales in the B2B segment.

Readiness to collaborate

A founder or C-level executive at the company will dedicate the appropriate amount of their time, energy and attention to develop a partnership with PwC and complete the programme.
