Three editions of CATALYST has been completed with very promising solutions co-created with our Catalyst partners (selected startups). Both the cycles saw the startup teams and SG internal teams coming together demonstrating collaboration and co-creation to arrive at prototypes.
How does your start-up benefit from the program?
CATALYST is a comprehensive close to 10 week program wherein the selected start-ups get to work on ONE of our theme based Business use cases with guidance, coaching and mentoring from SG GSC's experienced subject matter experts on Business areas.
With the enriched interaction, remuneration and a working space in our SG GSC premises (Bangalore or Chennai), it’s an apt platform to test, iterate and scale your product or solution with a real scenario.
Some of the key highlights from the previous cycles of Catalyst have been the interactions with a vast network of in-house Business Mentors, widening the reach of the promising product / solution across the group entities, the a-ha moments that one experiences in the 10 weeks of Catalyst bouncing ideas / discovering new approaches, the conversion from a Catalyst engagement to formal commercial engagements etc.
