Who We Are

We are an independent, non-profit science and technology hub focused on fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in Northern Ireland.

The epicentre of innovation in Northern Ireland, we provide everything that innovators and entrepreneurs need to reach higher and succeed faster – a home, a powerful community, enhanced by international networks of venture capital, and market development support.

Inclusivity is at the core of what we do at Catalyst, we are working to remove the barriers that prevent people from accessing opportunities in the innovation economy, such as access to entrepreneurship and learning the skills to innovate.

We invest, pro bono, all surplus profits from our property portfolio into nurturing a community-led innovation ecosystem that supports technology-focused start-ups, entrepreneurs, and innovators so they can create, scale, and flourish.
