Q: Why Fellows become part of the Catalyst Network?
At Catalyst, our network is our business. Connecting Fellows to our client company's value propositions that are insurgent in their domains makes sense. Catalyst bridge relationships result in corporate investment opportunities, OEM relationships, strategic alliances, customer pilots, and reseller agreements. Catalyst Fellows are provided with a variety of touch stone relationship opportunities within Catalyst portfolio companies.

Q: How does Catalyst select portfolio companies?
Catalyst performs its due-diligence using a litmus test within our Catalyst domain of expert Fellows. This litmus test of a companies "value proposition" is a market validity indicator. This allows Catalyst to determine the optimum course of action to best service our client companies.
