Asia Pacific NextGen Clubs
NextGen Club Lead
Globally, the PwC NextGen Club has over 2,500 next-generation members from 28 different countries and regions. As a member, you will be able to play an active role in shaping your own local and global ecosystem by connecting with other NextGen Club members. You will also have the opportunity to take advantage of exclusive educational, networking and mentoring offerings, both local and global, to help you grow and evolve your own entrepreneurial venture, to help build the family business legacy.
The Asia Pacific NextGen Club was launched in 2017, and consists of over 200 nextgens from across 18 countries. Supported by PwC’s Asia Pacific Centre for Family Business Excellence, this initiative allows nextgens in the region to foster inter-regional relationships, ideas exchange and tap into the expertise and experience from across the region, leveraging insights from PwC experts and through networking with other nextgen clubs.
The PwC NextGen Club is for next-generation family members typically between 25 and 40 years old. To make the most of what the club has to offer, you should have a role in the management, ownership or governance of your family business, or have set up an entrepreneurial venture separate from the family business.
