A global conglomerate uncovered over $300 million in business opportunities

A leading conglomerate decided to launch a joint venture between two of its business divisions in order to develop new revenue streams. To improve the initiative's prospects for success, executives wanted to evaluate the level of market interest in the US and Europe. PwC's global network of professionals conducted interviews with key executives at more than 50 companies in the US and Europe, then developed a value proposition and launch plan. As a result, PwC helped the conglomerate identify more than $300 million in potential business development and investment opportunities that helped them exploit new products and services beyond their traditional offerings.
