iStock_000039435680_SmallThe University of Southampton has announced the launch of its fifth UK business Catalyst, looking for young, innovative tech startups. The programme will provide six successful entrants with half a year of business mentoring, seminars, residency at the Catalyst Centre, a £1,000 cash injection, and access to a network of entrepreneurs.

“My team and I look forward to welcoming the next set of inspirational entrepreneurs to the Science Park later this year and I would encourage all those with a science or technology-led business idea to get involved”, says Peter Birkett, CEO of  the University of Southampton Science Park and founder of Catalyst.

Adam Kinf, a 2015 winner, enthused:

“I came into Catalyst with an idea that was just a few months old; I now have a solid value proposition, a great team and £400,000 worth of funding to push it to the next level. I’d encourage anyone thinking of taking the leap into entrepreneurship to apply to the Catalyst Programme today.”
