CEOs Connect is an exclusive peer to peer network supporting CEOs of high growth potential innovation companies in Northern Ireland as they scale and grow. Catalyst created the network in 2017 to provide an environment for CEOs to meet every regularly to develop relationships in confidence, share everyday challenges and more importantly realise that solutions can be only a conversation away. At times this can be a lonely journey for a CEO so the ability to speak to someone going through the same challenges can be extremely beneficial.
We’re helping these companies to fulfil their ambitions by gaining more traction and receiving increased levels of investment in order for their companies to grow. These CEOs have the potential to deliver a greater prize than Northern Ireland has ever experienced before – it’s evolution into one of Europe’s most entrepreneurial economies by 2030.
