PwC NextLevel

PwC NextLevel is the leading engagement platform for value creation between start-ups, corporates and investors in Indonesia.

We understand that the challenges faced by each start-up and scale-up are unique due to different stages of growth and different industries. Handling the pressure to grow while getting the fundamental infrastructure right is a complex exercise and requires support and collaboration.

Corporates, on the other hand, face challenges to keep innovating. Technology disruption, accelerated by COVID-19, has made them rethink and reconfigure how they manage business today and prepare for the future. As innovation through digitalisation leads to faster growth, higher productivity and the ability to be more competitive, corporates can gain many insights collaborating with start-ups when preparing for their digital future and innovation. 

Investors, including venture capitals, are looking for promising start-ups and want to ensure that these start-ups and scale-ups have the right fundamentals to grow. 


PwC NextLevel supports start-ups, scale-ups, corporates and investors in a range of different ways to help you satisfy these needs and growth ambitions. We are a combination of people with strong interests in the start-up ecosystem; we have the experience working with you that enables us to understand the challenges and the support you need to grow to the next level. PwC NextLevel provides the tools to enable you to effectively and efficiently scale your business and bring the ecosystem together; it is a platform for exchange between start-ups, scale-ups, corporates and investors. 

The platform is co-developed by the Entrepreneurial and Private Business Group of PwC Indonesia, PwC Academy and the leading key players in the ecosystem. We begin by inviting start-ups, scale-ups and corporates to join our tailored sessions phase which focuses on fundamental topics in the areas of tax, accounting and finance, structuring, funding strategy, legal, valuation and IT. The sessions promote collaborative learning between start-ups, scale-ups, corporates and our dedicated professionals with the aim of equipping the participants with the right infrastructure and fundamentals to be ready for growth. 

Then, within a certain period of time, these start-ups, scale-ups and corporates will participate in the collaboration phase, which promotes interactions between our team and the leading players in the ecosystem. As more corporates and investors are seeking to grow their businesses, innovation and investing in the right sector is crucial. Strategic investment and collaboration with start-ups and scale-ups promote quicker routes to achieve success with major innovative leaps to stand out from competition. 

PwC NextLevel leverages our network and knowledge to build bridges between start-ups, scale-ups, corporates and investors, including those from family-owned businesses and institutional corporations. The PwC NextLevel programme also supports venture capitals looking to optimise or improve innovative, fast-growing start-ups within their portfolio to be investment ready and realise their potential. We provide tools to enable these start-ups to grow effectively and efficiently.
