Recruitment begins for the third cohort of the Co-Founders programme
Catalyst Inc is now taking applications for the next round of their Co-Founders programme, due to start in September 2018.
The programme is open to individuals and teams interested in meeting a co-founder, creating a great product and embarking on an exciting start-up journey.
You can apply to join one of two programme components - the Hothouse or Core. Applications for both are competitive but, if you are selected, participation is free.
The Hothouse allows individuals to form teams during a two-day programme. It is open to:
- individuals with a product idea
- individuals without a product idea, but with experience or ambition to contribute to a team
The strongest teams from the Hothouse will be eligible to join the Co-Founders Core programme and work on their product idea.
Ready-formed teams can apply to Core, the 11-week programme, without going through the Hothouse. There are two areas of focus:
- how to co-found
- how to build a product through design sprints
The teams should be made up of two to four people and should be available to attend the 'Introduction to Design Thinking' workshop on Saturday 29 September 2018 where they will receive the toolkit for the programme.
The organisers are looking for participants who can demonstrate unique skills, the best talent and the ability to create the next great Northern Ireland product or company.
