In a statement, PwC India said on Tuesday that it has agreed to acquire a Bangalore-based Salesforce consulting firm Venerate Solutions Private Limited. However, PwC India has not disclosed the financial terms of this acquisition.
Post this buyout Venerate’s team of highly certified consultants and developers will integrate with PwC India’s Salesforce practice. This acquisition aligns with PwC’s commitment to investing in the area of digital transformation and also in strategic alliances.
Founded in 2016 in Bangalore, Venerate builds and deploys customised solutions on the Salesforce platform across multiple clouds including Financial Services Cloud, Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Vlocity Industry Cloud and various integration tools.

“This acquisition marks the beginning of the inorganic growth aspirations of the Advisory business in India.
