PwC in partnership with Findec - The Swedish hub for Fintechs!

PwC Sweden, the leading company in the field of audit and advisory services, has signed a partnership agreement with Findec - the Swedish hub for Fintechs!

Findec - Fintech & Decentralized, is the Swedish hub for fintechs, with the mission to boost the Swedish ecosystem and create more success stories by supporting members through network, knowledge and collaboration.

Findec is part of the Nordic Fintech Alliance, together with other fintech hubs from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland.

We are very happy to welcome PwC as the new strategic partner for Findec and the fintech ecosystem in Sweden. We have known PwC for a long time and have had deep discussion on many levels and we feel confident that we will do great things together on behalf of our members.” explains Mats Holmfeldt, co-founder and Chairman of Findec.

PwC aims to help the Swedish Fintech industry thrive. Included in the partnership with Findec is among other things an accelerator program for early startups within the sector. Companies who are included in the 3 month program will receive training days, inspiration, mentorship, advisory and coaching to make sure that they have the tools and knowledge needed to grow and success in the long run.

Swede’s have always been quick to adapt to new technology to meet customer demands, but when it comes to scaling up and capitalizing on these ideas we need to step up. We believe that hubs like Findec plays an important role to help more Fintech ideas reach their true potential. Thanks to the new partnership between PwC and Findec we make the broad spectrum of PwC’s knowledge available to startups, which will make a huge difference when it comes to scaling and thereby creating even more Fintech success stories originating from Sweden,“ concludes Henrik Olsson, PwC Sweden, responsible for the partnership with Findec.
