Together we make things happen

Katalysen

As a Venture Partner, we are a mix of a boutique management consulting firm and an early stage investment company. We are taking what is best from both in order to accelerate growth and execution of the ventures that engage with us. Katalysen relies on its own skills and experience and that amassed within our network to successfully pursue this mission, allowing our clients to focus on that which they do best.

The strength of Katalysen’s model lies in the combination of being a Venture Partner while also orchestrating an invaluable network: Katalysen’s VenturePort. This network encapsulates the demand, capital, ideas, entrepreneurial energy, experience, and vast know-how of a global tribe of venture builders such as entrepreneurs and investors. It is this network combined with Katalysen’s own expertise that forms our tried-and-trusted backbone for assisting clients.

Clients

We help our clients find very specific solutions at very specific points in time. These solutions may come in the form of a lead on an early cornerstone customer, the introduction of a technology partner which has the missing piece of your product-puzzle, the addition of specific expertise to your organization via a new board member, or the finding of new potential shareholders with vast relevant value beyond the addition of funds.

Katalysen is fortunate to have worked with a large number of clients, from a wide range of sectors, spread across multiple continents.

Partners

As a Network Company, Katalysen facilitates organic and spontaneous intra-network interactivity, synergy discovery, and subsequent value creation for network nodes.

Katalysen’s network consists of three types of nodes: Client companies, in which Katalysen has an equity stake; Stakeholders, such as Katalysen’s own shareholders and advisors; and Partners, with whom Katalysen cooperates.

It is Katalysen’s duty as a Venture Partner to unlock the latent value that exists amongst these nodes, and we are extremely grateful for our strong network of partners, with whom we work closely to create value for our clients.

What we do

Partners

Katalysen works with partners. This creates the ability to deliver real results to our typical client, the private growth company.

Our partners are companies, institutions or persons from different parts of the world who either share our interests or offer services within our focus area. Together with its partners, Katalysen builds financial infrastructure and digital services that catalyses growth.

Our partners allow us to develop our Portfolio and to foster Innovation.

Portfolio

The portfolio originates and consists mostly from companies that have paid us in sweat equity, but recently, intellectual property and own developments are added.

Our relationship with the portfolio companies is based on the principle of partnership. We are supportive and active. In nearly all of our companies we have invested in later financing rounds.

We are continuously scouting, on their behalf, for new valuable stakeholders and opportunities.

Innovation

Innovation needs courage. Katalysen has the courage to invest at an nascent stage in the development of an idea or project. Mostly alone and sometimes together with a brave partner.

We love innovative ideas and we love to share them with our community. We consider Innovation the most important value driver in all our client relationships. Our history and track record shows that we are innovative and can make things happen.
