Delegates should expect to commit a minimum of two days each week for the duration of the six month programme realise its transformative potential. It is therefore best suited to entrepreneurs located within reach of Southampton Science Park, where an office base will be provided free of charge for the duration.

On completion, participants will have created an investment-ready Business Plan, Management Team Plan and Funding Plan and have benefitted from high-level one-to-one mentoring, weekly peer group workshops with world class business leaders and two business review panels.

“The Catalyst Accelerator is a great programme that is definitely recommended to every entrepreneur. Key elements are the highly knowledgeable and experienced stakeholders such as (ex) entrepreneurs that take part through the programme, the exceptional business coaches that provide excellent guidance and the business panel review and all of this without giving out any equity.” Catalyst participant, 2019
