Professional services giant PwC has struck an alliance with CodeBase to help accelerate the technology incubator’s growth.

Edinburgh-based CodeBase is already home to more than 90 start-ups, including Administrate, QikServe, TVSquared and Care Sourcer, which employ more than 600 people collectively. A Stirling incubator was announced earlier this month.

The new agreement will see PwC offer business support at both of the CodeBase locations, along with funding to revamp and refit a further floor at the CodeBase HQ in Edinburgh, providing more space for start-ups.

PwC regional chairman Lindsay Gardiner said: “Professional services is changing and PwC in Scotland has attempted to be at the forefront of that change where it makes sense for our clients and the Scottish economy.”
