Software developer Audacia is one of ten companies to have been accepted on to the 12-week PwC Scale | Yorkshire programme.

Audacia develops problem-solving software for business projects.

PwC Scale | Yorkshire is run by the professional services firm in partnership with Leeds technology hub Futurelabs and aims to help innovators grow by connecting them with key decision makers, such as corporate executives and investors, and providing masterclasses.

"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,” said programme lead Josh Harvey.

“Innovation is changing the business landscape and it's vital to recognise the impact agile companies are having on more traditional sectors.”

During March and April, Audacia and its peers will have access to potential clients and investors, with three private pitch events including an executive evening, investors' day and programme finale.

Founded in 2010, Audacia has expanded into a larger office space and opened an office in central London in the last 12 months, as part of its strategic growth plans.

The software company’s clients include international vehicle hire company Europcar, global mechanical seals manufacturer AESSEAL and interior lining systems manufacturer British Gypsum.

"It's a real vote of confidence from PwC for us to be selected as one of Yorkshire's leading technology companies,” said Audacia's managing director Philip White.

“We look forward to taking advantage of the opportunities on offer in the programme."
