The Case Centre - Connect - August 2023

Dear Colleague

Welcome to the August issue of Connect!

This issue features three topical cases on entrepreneur, Sascha Mornell, as he creates a multi-sided platform, GetMyBoat; increasing the awareness amongst PwC's UK employees of the company's purpose statement; and SpaceX's attempts to deliver on its lofty ambitions including the establishment of a self-sustaining city on Mars.

Our upcoming case workshop and webinar programme is packed with great events - check it out below.

Kind regards
