Scale, redefined for the Canadian technology sector

We bring our collective expertise to get you to the next level

When considering how to scale your business, the obvious comes to mind: raising capital, growing sales and carving out market share. But we know from experience that scaling a tech company is more complex and demanding than expected. Even the most innovative leaders don’t yet know everything they need to know to get to the next level. Are you confident you have all your bases covered?

Canada's scale-up deficit

Canada’s scale-up deficit

Of the companies raising seed or early-stage funding in 2015-2017, only 10% of them have raised expansion or later-stage funding in 2016-2018. As a result, Canada has become a launch-pad for early-stage companies. With a few notable exceptions, we are still lacking the later-stage success stories we see in many other ecosystems.

As a tech leader, you need to keep pace with change and find the right opportunities to grow, optimize and evolve your business to the next level. Scaling requires an evolving suitcase of needs—from talent management and risk compliance to taxes and corporate finance—and it helps to have a partner who can bring you what you need, when you need it.

 

“Scaling a tech company can be chaotic and overwhelming–there’s no playbook for it. Our team members come from the tech sector and have been on the scaling journey before. At PwC Canada, we have the resources to bring our clients what they need when they need it, helping them focus on what they do best.”
