THE THREE PILLARS TO YOUR CATALYST JOURNEY

Scaling for growth

We are looking for businesses and individuals with the potential to step into a market and shake it up with a new or more efficient way of doing things, to create a new market, or plug a gap in an existing one. All we need is your dedication and readiness to grow your business.

Expert coaching

Featuring one-to-one expert coaching, workshops on key aspects of running a business, a peer support group, business review panels with industry experts, help to access business finance and profile-raising marketing support.

Bespoke support

We are a highly experienced team, with the necessary skills and contacts to help get your ideas off paper and into the world with the best chance of success. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach and you and your business will get bespoke advice and support that is unique to you.
