Join us at Inbound Investors 2023 and be at the forefront of emerging opportunities, as we bring together the latest innovative companies from the NI ecosystem all in one place.

This is an unparalleled opportunity to make the connections you need to succeed.
You’ll also have the opportunity to choose additional meetings through our efficient and easy-to-use event app.

We do the hard work for you!
Once accepted into the process, the individual company’s funding journey will be profiled, and support will be provided to prepare the company for funding, pitches, and due diligence.
The Matching Process
The matching process is personalised to each participating company and investor. Based on your investment thesis/criteria, we will set up a number of robust meetings* for you with local companies. You will get the opportunity to view one-page summaries from each company attending and request your own meetings in the afternoon (via the event platform).
*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.
