What is the catalyst challenge all about?
Created by the University of Southampton Science Park and the Career Destinations team at the University, Catalyst Challenge is a day long event that brings the most enterprising students from the University to the Park to learn how to develop a real-life business model and pitch to a panel of judges using the Business Model Canvas.
