Basecamp Boston 2023 is the second iteration of a programme developed by Catalyst designed to forge solid connections between Northern Ireland businesses and the US to accelerate growth.

We have a pre-existing extended network of business connectors but will work with a US delivery partner to help co-ordinate Basecamp Boston and fulfil the following responsibilities:

  • Support Catalyst in the review of applications and selection of NI participants
  • Meet with up to 18 selected NI companies to review their current status, and communication tools, identify their goals in the US, and outline types of mentoring support required.
  • In collaboration with Catalyst recruit potential Boston/US-based mentors for the Basecamp Boston programme.
  • Assist with the development of, and participate in, the Basecamp Boston Programme (26-30 June 2023) with a view to helping to solidify go-to-market strategies based on the input from US mentors and the requirements of participating in NI
  • Debrief with NI companies post-event to identify specific US mentor(s) to develop clear identifiable goals and a plan of action to access new US markets and scale their business.
  • The ideal US delivery partner will have a pre-existing and extensive network of business consultants, industry leaders, and established experts to draw from to help in identifying relevant US mentors who can provide specific insights into go-to-market strategies for participating NI companies.

Respondents to the request to tender should identify an anticipated number of days to complete a Needs Analysis with up to 18 participating NI companies, along with the number of days required to recruit up to a maximum of 30 potential US mentors who can address specific needs of the NI companies, and provide a breakdown of cost per NI company, cost per US mentor, staffing costs, and timeline for completion.

Replies can be sent by email to tomas.bamford@wearecatalyst.org  with the subject line “Basecamp Boston – US Mentor” to arrive by Wednesday 8th February.
