Startups from the 1st batch of PwC Russia Accelerator

Warden Machinery (RPA/ML/Computer Vision)

Warden Machinery is a computer vision system with various industrial applications, including video analysis using existing CCTV infrastructure (with K2 Consult, an integrating partner), product quality control, employee compliance control and HSEA automation (with SAP CIS, an integrating partner) and comprehensive RPA projects (with AlfaInTech and TRA Robotics, robotics integrating partners).

electroNeek (Lean Robotic Process Automation)

electroNeek is an automation tool combining robotic process automation (RPA) technology and LeanRPA. The electroNeek platform creates RPA bots, which are digital work processes executed in various IT systems and solutions at the user interface level. The bot imitates human actions within a pre-set business process and saves people from performing routine tasks (it is also faster and works 24/7).

3N Intelligence (Cyber Security)

3N Intelligence is software that builds self-defence capability within operating business processes, akin to the human immune system—an add-on that would prevent deviations from normal process execution, would alert you on events that may indicate potential operating losses, cyberattacks or fraudulent activities, and, provided the corresponding settings are in place, would stop attacks before they even start.

ClimateGuard (IoT)

ClimateGuard is working on an IoT device that monitors indoor microclimates across nine metrics: temperature, humidity, dust content, volatile organic component content, CO2 content, magnetic radiation, noise level, lighting level and quality, and vibration. The device helps users to improve their health, performance and well-being by quickly responding to potential indoor health risks in the room.

Smart Secretary (AI/Voice Virtual Assistant)

Smart Secretary is a virtual business assistant built upon the Yandex Alisa voice service. The system helps users manage their working hours more productively and make decisions while on the move (e.g., driving, out of office). Instead of spending time typing a message, you can give a simple voice command to your Smart Secretary. The Smart Secretary can help you book a car or a conference room, quickly find your colleagues’ contacts, arrange a meeting and record decisions and action items during the meeting, and automatically prepare the finalised minutes and email them to the participants. These are just a few possible scenarios. The only limitations on the system’s capabilities are the user’s ideas and needs. This system needs no special applications and works with Yandex.Alisa and Yandex.Station.

LoyaltyLab (AI/Retail)

LoyaltyLab helps retailers to increase profits and reduce customer churn by providing personalised recommendations to their customers. During primary analysis, LoyaltyLab segments all identified customers into groups based on their behaviour. Personalised recommendations for each customer are generated based on their consumer habits. (AI/Personal Assistant Chatbot)

AutoFAQ is a chat platform and a convenient interface that provides employees with access to knowledge via well-known communication channels. We automate request processing at the first line of support by providing direct answers to employees (generated by a chat bot) and speed up the second line of support operations with recommendations from helpline experts.

The system can be connected to any communication channels, including email and messengers. The client cab configures the knowledge base and level of automation without involving IT specialists or the vendor. To start, you will only need an Excel file with FAQs or internal regulations.

Pozus (AI/Computer Vision)

Pozus is a human motion capture system for mobile devices. The programme works with a standard smartphone camera. Pozus detects 16 key body points, working in real time on your mobile device. The prototype can create 3D coordinates of the human body.

DataFabric (Data Science/Semantic Data Governance)

DataFabric Core collects, transforms, manages, stores and analyses data using semantic technology (semantic data governance).

Based on this system, we have developed end-user tools and solutions for forensic, compliance, due diligence and KYC procedures.

Studyx (Online-learning)

Studyx is a platform for personalised micro-learning and testing that can be used on any device.

The company’s in-house methodology and adaptive testing and learning technology use genuine adaptivity, i.e., real-time adaptation of test content and questions. The methodology and technology have been developed as an SaaS service and tested in the field. In-test adaptation of content and questions is carried out in real time by analysing data on user behaviour and interaction with the study materials and analysing answers to the questions offered during the test.

Crucial data on the learning process, content interaction intensity and learning analytics are continuously collected and analysed and, if need be, are easily and conveniently visualised in understandable dashboards.

An easy and quick integration with existing corporate IT systems enables seamless implementation of this learning environment on corporate portals, corporate university websites or external educational products. It is also available separately as a public web service or mobile application, integrated via an open API. The service follows IS best practices, including those specific to Russia. It features a secure connection, additional data exchange encryption, full depersonalisation of information stored, data storage on Russia-based servers, encrypted databases and data that is physically separated by client.

The interface, content and methodology are adapted for mobile devices.

The platform is easily scalable, with a mature API for data exchange with other systems, ready templates for fast development and roll-out of mobile applications (iOS and Android), and easy tailoring to the customer’s needs. (Online-learning) supports effective learning with educational videos that allow the user to take notes during the video. The notes are finalised as a knowledge progression record and are linked to specific frames in the video. The note-taking process facilitates a more effective assimilation and adoption of knowledge from the video content.

Skill Cup (Online-learning)

Skill Cup is a platform that helps you set up mobile corporate trainings. Working on your smartphone, Skill Cup runs trainings for all sorts of areas, making them easy and fun. You can learn when and where you want to, without long and boring lectures! Using Skill Cup will save you a lot of time, as the modules are short (from three to seven minutes). You can study while commuting, sitting in traffic or waiting for your coffee.

IZZZIO (Blockchain)

IZZZIO is a versatile blockchain platform enabling customised high-speed and low-cost solutions powered by LCPoA, a self-writing algorithm that can get all of your tasks done.


AIDocs is an auditor digital assistant that simplifies data reconciliation between accounting systems (accounting entries) and source documents.

AlDocs can: 

  1. recognise scanned documents;
  2. match each document to a corresponding action in the system;
  3. highlight document data used to create the entry;
  4. help you adjust processing outputs at any stage;
  5. support verification and notification systems;
  6. generate Excel reports.

Feedback from participants

“The PwC programme completely expanded our minds.  We were caught up in a torrent of information, hypotheses and discussions. We couldn’t wait for the next week to start. Under normal circumstances, it could take you a whole month to do something, but when you measure time in weeks, you need to deliver every seven days. These weekly milestones stimulate you to use them as touch points to further develop your product. Thus, our project grew every week. Our experience at the accelerator—the drive, information exchange, discussions of hypotheses, sprint approach to work that encourages you to deliver promptly and accurately—was extremely positive.”

Mikhail Rozhin, ElectroNeek

“We spent our time very effectively at the PwC Accelerator. We put together two pilot projects and enjoyed the educational part as well, where we were coached by mentors and attended interesting and actionable lectures. We also had an opportunity to receive useful feedback on our product.”

Alexey Kurov, Pozus
