PwC's Accelerator - Your privileged partner for international expansion

Since 2012, PwC's Accelerator has been helping top-flight technology companies to accelerate and streamline their international expansion to create sustainable value. CEOs of over 30 companies from ten countries have already made the most of PwC's Accelerator.

For the 2014 edition of the "Local to Global" Expo, PwC's Accelerator welcomed more than 250 international participants, where we showcased ten companies who are among the most promising in their field. This included: Big Data, enterprise software, cybersecurity and financial technology companies from all over the world. More than 100 match making sessions also helped these companies to further expand their international exposure to direct contacts and client leads.

"This event provides a forum for these innovative companies to meet potential European clients and investors", said PwC's Accelerator partner Laurent Probst.
