We know that accelerating startups alone is not sufficient. The wider environment in which they operate also has to be conducive to their growth – which means addressing capital, talent, partnerships, and regulatory barriers.
Catalyst Fund accelerates the inclusive fintech ecosystem by bringing together global and local innovators to form circles of investors, corporate institutions, market facilitators, and universities. They connect with our de-risked startups, and benefit from deep industry insights, exchange ideas through peer networks, and commit to working with us to advance the wider ecosystem.
