Why Springboard?

Springboard provides a network of Critical Friends who stress-test your product idea, helping you to refine the proposition and avoid costly mistakes.

Our approach is uncompromising, our support is unconditional. Experienced Entrepreneurs in Residence give valuable insight on a pro-bono basis to help your business succeed.

Agility is important. In just 12 weeks, Springboard will help you build a robust business model, reduce risk and create a commercialisation strategy that investors will love.

Springboard was a transformational experience for CADshare, and for me personally. I entered the process with a concept I thought had potential and emerged at the other end with a solid foundation for the business and a well-articulated, credible investment proposition. Our EiRs provided world-class guidance and support, and access to the Catalyst Inc global network of contacts will continue to prove invaluable. Springboard gave us the confidence to know that we really are "investor ready".


Applications are open and we look forward to hearing from you
