PricewaterhouseCoopers is set to reveal how businesses can keep up with the fast-paced digital times at a May event in Vienna. 

PwC, a multinational firm that focuses on focuses on audit and assurance, tax and consulting services, will be at the GovTech.Pioneers and Pioneers’18 event on May 24 and 25 in Vienna’s Hofburg

Digitalization is thought to be a key challenge facing the business and startup work. PwC, a multinational firm that focuses on focuses on audit and assurance, tax and consulting services, is set to explain its Business, eXperience and Technology (BXT) approach. 

Visitors to the event at the Hofburg can stop by at the PwC Lounge and get a taste of how PwC helps companies keep pace with the times in the digital age.

“Thanks to artificial intelligence, robotics and other technologies, a startup or a company that is still on the drawing board today could be the market leader in ten years,” explains Gerald Dipplinger, Digital Leader at PwC Austria.

“We support companies as they develop new business models and a new strategy for the digital age. To do this we work at the intersection of Business, eXperience and Technology. At Pioneers’18, visitors can check out these three dimensions in the PwC Lounge and discover how to approach business challenges using the BXT model.”

The PwC Lounge will also be running the eValuation tool, which provides startups with an assessment of their market value. With so many data-hungry investors at Pioneers’18, plenty of the more established startups from among our Pioneers500 selection will be lining up for the company valuation estimates the tool can provide at the end of a process that takes just 20 minutes.

Now into its fourth year, the partnership between Pioneers and PwC has a greater scope than ever before. The two will be pushing focusing heavily on connecting startups and corporations. As the key partner to Pioneers500, the program focussed on early-stage startups, PwC – together with some of their key clients – will join us in selecting the Top 50 who’ll get to pitch on our main stage at the Hofburg. Furthermore, together with our consultancy arm Pioneers Discover, they will release a report on the 500 early-stage startups that will attend.
