PwC has partnered with Collective Works, a co-working space operator, enabling its newly-launched Venture Hub to have a presence at the co-working spaces located in the heart of Singapore’s central business district: at Capital Hub Tower on Robinson Road and The Globe along Cecil Street. PwC’s Venture Hub will also co-host a series of events with Collective Works for entrepreneurs and investors.

PwC’s Venture Hub goes beyond catering to the traditional realm of fintech and will look at all disruptive technologies in areas such as biomedicaltech, regtech, wealthtech, and legaltech. Said Patrick Yeo, Venture Hub Leader, PwC Singapore: “The startup and innovation space is highly dynamic and rapidly evolving. To make a difference in this space, we have first disrupted ourselves and are taking bold steps in contrast to the way we traditionally operate and do business.

“With our presence at Collective Works, we are now able to engage with entrepreneurs at every step of their journey – from concept, to acceleration and commercialisation, to scaling up and expansion; on top of looking at new and innovative ways to collaborate with them.”

Added Ken Ching, Asia Pacific Head of PwC’s Global Financial Services Innovation Centre: “With the combination of our expertise in the Venture Hub and Global Financial Services Innovation Centre, we look forward to collaborating with startups and investors to help them springboard into the wider Asian region and the rest of the world.”
