Could you be the next Catalyst Centre success story? Get applying now!!

With multiple companies already securing places within the Catalyst Centre, time is running out to be in with a chance to kick start your science or technology-based business.

Win not only personal mentoring, expert support and free office space for 6 months; but also £1,000 towards business expenses, access to the vast network of inspirational entrepreneurs on the Science Park and weekly seminars to teach you all you need to know about running a start-up. You need to act fast to secure your place!

The past three years have shown us that business success comes from many things, but above all, it is clear that determination is key. All of our Catalyst graduates entered the competition because they were determined to succeed, and were put through because they had a exciting business idea and the passion to back it up.

All of them have been at very different stages in the business cycle, from conceptual businesses and companies ready to launch their product to fully fledged start-ups that just needed that extra support to take them forward. The entrepreneurial spirit is something that we have seen in spades from the Catalyst graduates, and we very much look forward to welcoming more determined and forward thinking companies to the Science Park this September! This could be you!

It’s not for the faint hearted and it certainly tests commitment and resolve, so only serious, dedicated and hard-working people need apply! It’s not essential to have commercial experience or even a business plan at this stage – just a great idea and the drive to make it happen because the Catalyst Centre opportunity provides everything for the burgeoning start-up. Personality, motivation and coach-ability are important factors!
