Idea incubation


Do you see the future differently?  Have you had a brainwave that you believe could be a genuine ‘game changer’ for society? Perhaps you know someone with innovative ideas and heaps of ambition and energy - but little idea how to turn these into a successful commercial operation? 

If you have an exciting business concept but need help to successfully bring it to market, harnessing the power of our proven business accelerator programme could help you get there faster.

Catalyst is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs with an early stage business - or an ingenious idea for one – no matter whether you’ve been in business before or not. On completion, you will have created an investment-ready Business Plan, Management Team Plan and Funding Plan and benefitted from high-level one-to-one mentoring and commercially focused weekly peer group workshops with world class business leaders. It is fully funded for successful applicants.
