PwC has come on board as a sponsor.

The organisers of The Great British Entrepreneurs Scale-Up Conference are delighted to announce that professional services giant PwC has come on board as a sponsor.

Taking place in London on 20th November, the Scale-Up Conference is a one-day event designed to help entrepreneurs, founders and business owners take the next step in their journey; scaling their business.

The definition of a ‘scale-up’ is an enterprise with average annualized growth in employees or turnover greater than 20 per cent per annum over a three-year period, and with more than 10 employees at the beginning of the observation period.

The conference draws upon the real-life experiences of entrepreneurs and experts who have navigated the transition from start-up to scale-up and have increased their size, reach and revenues exponentially, while also carefully managing their cost of doing business.

PwC is passionate about supporting entrepreneurs, providing tailored solutions for each stage of an entrepreneur’s growth journey, from start-up through international expansion to exit.

Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards and The Great British Entrepreneurs Scale-Up Conference, said: “We are delighted to have PwC on board for the Scale-Up Conference. The event’s focus is providing entrepreneurs with the knowledge and advice they need to start their scale-up journey. PwC is a market leader in that sense, providing the highest professional services to over 100,000 entrepreneurial and private businesses.”

Brian Henderson, fast growth leader at PwC, commented: “We’re committed to supporting entrepreneurs, so sponsoring the Scale-Up Conference was natural fit for us. We recognise the impact small but scaling companies are having on industries and the value collaboration with them can bring. By combining scale-ups’ ingenuity and hunger with our experience, resources and expertise, we help businesses achieve rapid growth through tailored advice and solutions.”

PwC panel sessions will run throughout the day covering topics pertinent to entrepreneurs on their scale up journey. Panel session will cover subjects including driving growth through sales and appointing a team with the right skills to enable scalability. The conference will close with a panel session that hears from entrepreneurs who’ve ‘been there and done it’ imparting their experiences of what their ‘life after exit’ looks like.

Confirmed speakers at the Great British Entrepreneurs Scale-Up Conference include Jenny Campbell, entrepreneur and the latest Dragon to BBC’s Dragons Den, Russ Shaw, Angel & Venture Investor & Gordon McAlpine, Serial entrepreneur and author of the Scale Up Millionaire.

Taking place in November, The Great British Entrepreneur Scale-Up Conference will attract an audience of 500 founders, entrepreneurs and business owners from ambitious businesses.
