Meet some of UK's top investors!

As a not-for-profit, Catalyst provides intelligent and highly focused sources of fund-matching for high growth-potential innovation companies.

Held at the Titanic Hotel on October 18th, we’re giving you the opportunity to pitch to a number of notable UK investors – all in one day!

Inbound Investors 2021 was a huge success with over 60 investors and 40 companies and around 300 meetings! You can read more about it and see who was there here!

Pre-matched meetings arranged for you by our experts based on your sectors and needs.

We aim to set up at least 5 meetings for each company in attendance. Once accepted into the process, your funding journey will be profiled and support will be provided to prepare you for funding, pitches and due diligence. All at no cost to you, thanks to our amazing sponsors.

Company Applications for Inbound Investors 2022 are now closed

The Matching Process

The matching process is personalised to each participating company and investor. Based on your needs, we will set up a select number of robust engagements. Investors will also get the opportunity to view one-page summaries from each company attending and request their own meetings with companies in the afternoon.

You will have an assigned meeting point to allow for investors to move around and have quick chats. There will be additional networking opportunities at lunch and the evening social event.

Ultimately, it is always up to the participating company and funding source to agree and finalise a deal. Catalyst can provide information based on its extensive experience, but it does not provide advice.

***Please note participation is limited to one representative per company.
