Kindred Catalyst

Linking bright and brave ideas with people who can make it happen

We are building a collective of investors and changemakers who want to accelerate impactful ideas into successful, sustainable businesses that will benefit society. We believe that this can be achieved through building meaningful networks, and doing business based on genuine connections and shared values. 

Kindred Catalyst is formed of two collectives: investors and entrepreneurs

For entrepreneurs

Kindred’s Catalyst programme accepts seasonal cohorts of ambitious entrepreneurs who are working to realise ideas that will have lasting, impactful, and incremental value to society. The programme includes peer-to-peer networking events, a training session with an expert pitch coach to help entrepreneurs best communicate their vision, and culminates in our Catalyst showcase evening, where entrepreneurs will share their story with our collective of investors. 

To apply for the programme, entrepreneurs must complete an application form and include a copy of their pitch deck. 

Application dates for Summer 2020 announced soon, pending COVID-19

For investors

We believe in the power of strong, human networks, and doing business through shared values. Our Kindred Catalyst investor collective is an invite-only network where investors and changemakers can connect and expand their professional and personal communities. As well as hosting regular socials for our collective, members are invited to a seasonal storytelling showcase, where a selected cohort of entrepreneurs will present their ideas. 

It all starts with a story

Storytelling is core to creating human connection and communicating ideas. It’s how leaders influence others, how we make friends, how we relate to other people, and how we open our mind to new ideas. 

Impactful ideas build great businesses and we believe that the traditional pitching format can be restrictive in how they are communicated. Our storytelling showcase offers entrepreneurs the chance to communicate their vision through a story, rather than through a sales pitch.
