Our Process

How We Scale Your Venture

The Cataliize ethos is one of co-entrepreneurship.

We believe human capital is as important as funding to the success of a globally disruptive technology company. Cataliize is the world’s first venture catalyst, providing the on-demand, variably costed human capital you need to succeed globally!

Applications for companies to join the Cataliize network can be made on our website, where through a series of high level questions we can assess suitability of a partnership. Once we have reviewed your application, we will let you know if you meet the criteria so we can commence working with your and your team.

The Cataliize engagement process starts with a three week Assessment. We begin with our proprietary profiling assessment, which is designed specifically to understand the level of human capital entrepreneurs and founders need on their journey.

A suitable Cataliize partner from your home market is then appointed to guide you through our Assessment. Your Cataliize Partner takes a look at the global market and measures your likelihood to succeed against seven measures from a lean start-up methodology. As part of this, our Cataliize board members from seven different disciplines assess strategy – now and into the future. This enables Cataliize to understand the short, medium and long-term needs of your venture and how our members from 36 cities around the world can work with you on an on-demand basis to further enable your founder and your team.

We present the Capability Review in week three so we can make the decision together whether to proceed to the next step – a Pre Scale agreement to get immediate traction or the co-creation of a 36 month global scaling plan using Cataliize variably costed members from around the world. This is where we review the big hairy audacious goal! And how do you partner together with our on demand local team of experts around the world to roll out into new territories? Where is the early revenue? Is the technology fit-for-purpose for a global rollout?

The global scaling plan includes a forecast of costs to go global, across all disciplines necessary for success. Cataliize also provides on-demand, variably costed teams in launch markets in 36 cities around the world, and the scaling plan provides both revenue forecasts and operational funds required for success. Our ethos is that on demand experts in local markets is the key to success and rapid global growth.

The shared objective for each of our portfolio companies is not only a global plan but ultimately sustainable profitability. The Cataliize global scaling plan takes a mid stage company from their home territory to new territories around the globe – we work together towards a shared vision with shared KPIs – at the end of our plan we exit the business, at acquisition time, IPO or simply when the business has reached sustainable profitability and can now afford a full time team.
