What is the Catalyst Programme all about?
Created by the University of Southampton Science Park, Catalyst is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurial spirits with scientific or technology-led early stage businesses.
If you have an exciting business concept but need help to successfully bring it to market, harnessing the power of our proven business incubation process could help you get there faster. Our programme is an intensive mix of high-level mentoring, commercially focused workshops and seminars with leading professionals, access to a dynamic network of like-minded individuals and a physical business base here at the Science Park over six months.
You will need drive and determination to succeed from the outset. First, you will pitch your idea and business proposition to a panel of seasoned experts in a competitive process. Those selected will join the programme in Spring or Summer, graduating 6 months later.
Have you got what it takes? Could you be the next Catalyst success story? Apply here.
