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 business ideas and heaps of ambition and energy - but are struggling to turn these into a successful commercial operation?  

If you have an early stage or start-up business  but need help to make it a success, harnessing the power of our proven Catalyst business accelerator programme could help you get there faster. 

On completion, you will have benefitted from high-level one-to-one sessions and commercially-focused weekly peer group workshops with world-class business mentors. You will also have created an investment-ready Business Plan, Management Team Plan and Funding Plan to propel your business forward.  

Catalyst is fully funded for successful applicants. No stake is taken by any party involved in this programme, so you retain all equity in your business.
