Posted on the 25th January 2017

Cambridge UK, 25 January 2017 – Money Mover, the SME-focused online currency exchange and international payments service, was delighted to participate in the Demo Day, held by PwC, in collaboration with Swiftscale. The Demo Day marked the end of the three month Future of Work programme; a unique initiative to identify and nurture fast-growth enterprise start-ups with the potential to transform the workplace through scalable innovation.

The 12 week programme took Money Mover and 11 other B2B start-ups with a proven product and supported their growth through a combination of executive mentoring, corporate introductions and a business development curriculum.

The Demo Day, hosted by PwC at its Embankment Place office, saw the Winter ’16 Cohort pitch their progress and showcase their products to an audience of enterprise executives, investors, entrepreneurs and community influencers.

Over the 12 week programme, Money Mover and the other participants have enjoyed masterclasses from sales and marketing experts, extensive corporate introductions and guidance from industry specialists at PwC, sponsors Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Sage along with a carefully curated group of executive mentors. As a result, all of the cohort members have grown and accelerated their sales pipelines, developed business planning and received valuable corporate insights.

Hamish Anderson, CEO of Money Mover commented:

"Participating in the Future of Work programme has been a fantastic opportunity for Money Mover. It has been highly beneficial for us to work alongside other like-minded business. Both the mentoring programme and the corporate introductions have been of huge benefit to us and we look forward to being able to use the learnings to move our business forward.”

Alex Sainty, co-founder of SwiftScale, added:

"I am intensely proud of this cohort and their many achievements; pipelines have expanded, pilots have been negotiated, contracts won, money raised and teams have grown. The success of the scale-ups is directly attributable to our strong partnership with PwC, which I believe exemplifies the impact of effective startup-corporate collaboration. “
