Kindred Catalyst

For entrepreneurs

Are you building a company that will have a genuine, lasting, and positive impact on society? Joining our entrepreneur collective will not only connect you to like-minded peers and investors, but make you a part of a meaningful network of people with shared values.

Application and selection

Each of our entrepreneurs must submit an application that showcases both who they are as a person and the impacts and viability of their idea. The application involves filling in a form online and including a copy of your pitch deck. 

Selection is based on five criteria, along with an ‘honest bio’: a series of short questions focusing on who you really are beyond the achievements on your CV. The criteria are: values, positive effect on society, feasibility, market validation, and what your ‘X’ factor is.

 

Entrepreneur social

An informal evening at Kindred where selected entrepreneurs will be able to meet their peers and hear from programme organisers.

Pitch coaching

Entrepreneurs will participate in a pitch coaching session, where they will learn how to best showcase their ideas and potential through storytelling. We believe storytelling is the most powerful way to connect with others and that the traditional pitching format can sometimes be restrictive. Our pitching expert will teach our cohort how to express ideas clearly and convincingly, without compromising on creativity. 

Storytelling showcase

Each cohort’s programme culminates in a storytelling evening, where entrepreneurs will have a chance to showcase their business idea and potential to our Investor Collective. We believe that business is best done through shared values, and this event is an opportunity to meet investors interested in ideas with social impact.

Applications for the Summer 2020 cohort are temporarily postponed, due to COVID-19. 

Updates will be posted on this page and our social media channels.
