Hi Andrew,

I was wondering if you know of anyone that’s considering starting a business, or wants to scale an early stage concept? If so, please forward this onto anyone that you think will be interested.

Catalyst Accelerator Programme for tech start-ups. The fully-funded 12-week programme begins in April with introductory days in March 2019 and is being held at the prestigious University of Southampton Science Park.

APPLY HERE: https://www.science-park.co.uk/grow/start-up/catalyst/fast-track-your-business-idea

Free places are awarded based on the strength of the business case put forward in the application.

The Catalyst Accelerator is an intense 12-week programme of one-to-one mentoring and commercially focused weekly peer group workshops with world class business leaders. Having completed an investment-ready Business Plan, Management Team Plan and Funding Plan, entrepreneurs then have the opportunity to meet potential investors at an investor event at the end of the programme.

There’s no cost to participants as the Catalyst Accelerator programme is fully funded by the Science Park and, importantly, no stake is taken by any party involved so that entrepreneurs retain their equity. The whole thing is worth about £15,000.

Catalyst entrepreneurs benefit from:
  • Retaining their equity – no stake is taken by any party involved in Catalyst.
  • Introductions to potential investors at the Catalyst Investor Event.
  • Completing an investment-ready Business Plan, Management Team Plan and Funding Plan.
  • High-level one-to-one mentoring with world class business leaders.
  • Commercially focused weekly peer group workshops.
  • Access to a dynamic network of entrepreneurs and investors at Southampton Science Park.
  • Free of charge office base for the duration of the programme.
  • Free of charge laboratory space for the duration of the programme if needed.
  • A £500 cash injection for start-up business expenses.
Participants need to commit a minimum of 2 days each week for 12 weeks to fully benefit from the programme and it is best suited to those located within reach of the south coast (M3/A34/M27).

Application is a simple two-step process:
  1. APPLY ONLINE with as much information about the business as possible. Places at the introductory days are allocated based on the strength of the business case put forward in your application.
  2. ATTEND AN INTRODUCTORY DAY at Southampton Science Park to meet the Catalyst team and discuss ideas further.
Feel free to forward this email onto anyone that you think will be interested in this programme, or, if you have any ideas or questions yourself, do please get in touch.

Many thanks,
