BioEsol, Climate 2022

“Katapult has become a partner in the truest sense of the word – opening new channels for finance and customer development that were simply inaccessible prior to the program. Being embedded in the Norwegian ecosystem has also proven to be invaluable, helping us to establish direct bonds between Norwegian and American partners, each at the forefront of their fields, but often with limited prior contact.”

To build a global leading company in the field of micromobility for professionals, to maximise our positive impact worldwide and to do that in an efficient way would be much harder without the support and network of the Katapult ecosystem that we received during these 3 intense month.”

Having access to the Katapult network, through the mentorship sessions & introductions really helped us in the formulation and deployment of our investor & impact strategies. Being now part of the Katapult family is something that we can only be proud of.”

Wattnow, Climate 2021

“Wildfire Energy highly recommends the Katapult Accelerator program. The program is professionally set-up and run by experts in the start-up space. We gained significant value from the Impact Readiness module enabling us to formally document with literature references the positive impact on climate change our technology provides. This process was engaging the challenging but support was always close at hand. We now have an easy to follow guide for investors to understand our impact – a key investment decision. We found the funding simulation in the Investor Readiness module extremely useful. It was very challenging but the competitive nature and real-life example investor cards made it fun and enlightening. Our key take-away was that we need to think bigger when fund raising. If you have a good product, a plan to get there and a strong team, then go for it! The program made good use of technology to deliver content and accommodate our time difference. Case studies of previous start-ups and guest appearances from Katapult alumni provided valuable insights in terms of both realising we are not alone in facing start-up challenges, and importantly we will reach our end goal.The Katapult program enabled us to finalise our Seed round and to achieve our intial objective of establishing an entry point into Europe and exposure to impact investors in this region. While it is the end of the program for us, it is just the beginning of our next journey.”

Wildfire Energy, Climate 2022

“The Katapult Accelerator is like a mini Executive MBA for both young and mature startups.”

The Katapult program has been an amazing experience for me and our business. We have had the opportunity to meet other amazing founders in the African Agritech space who share the same passion and drive for the continent. The experts that the Katapult team brought to lead the discussions around scale/growth while being more impactful were very knowledgeable and the lessons learnt will bode well for the future. Demo day was also a huge success for us and we look forward to use the connections made to close our round over the next few weeks, as well as build for more success in the future.
