Leeds-headquartered software developer Audacia is on track for further growth, as it embarks on a 12-week scale-up programme for innovative companies.
Audacia is one of ten mature and fast-growing companies to be accepted onto the 12-week PwC Scale | Yorkshire programme, which aims to help innovators grow by providing masterclasses and connecting them to key decision makers such as corporate executives and investors.
The PwC Scale | Yorkshire programme is run by the global professional services firm in partnership with Leeds technology hub Futurelabs.
It has already been successfully implemented by PwC in four other regions across the UK within specific sectors including commerce, health and HR.
During March and April, Audacia and its peers will have privileged access to potential clients and investors, with three private pitch events including an executive evening, investors’ day and programme finale.
Commenting on the programme launch, PwC Scale | Yorkshire lead, Josh Harvey, said: “Our programme aims to connect high-quality companies that are ready to scale with large progressive organisations looking to embrace new technologies and pioneering services.
“Innovation is changing the business landscape and it’s vital to recognise the impact agile companies are having on more traditional sectors.
“PwC is looking for well-established companies with validated products, finance and scalability. Audacia is a prime example of this, it shows strong performance and boasts an impressive client and project portfolio.
“It’s one of the most promising technology companies in Yorkshire and we’re delighted to have them as part of the programme.”
Audacia specialises in developing problem-solving technology for complex business-critical projects.
The Microsoft Gold Partner’s clients include global mechanical seals manufacturer AESSEAL, leading interior lining systems manufacturer British Gypsum (part of the Saint-Gobain group), international grain trader Gleadell and international vehicle hire company Europcar.
Founded in 2010, Audacia has doubled its headcount to 32, expanded into a larger office space on The Calls and opened an office in central London in the last 12 months, as part of its strategic growth plans.
Commenting on Audacia’s place on the programme, managing director Philip White said: “We have already established a strong reputation as a critical technology partner, and this programme will help us reach an influential audience of potential clients and partners.
“We specialise in helping global businesses solve large-scale complex projects and being able to showcase our approach is vital for securing our continued expansion.
“It’s a real vote of confidence from PwC for us to be selected as one of Yorkshire’s leading technology companies and we look forward to taking advantage of the opportunities on offer in the programme.”
