An opportunity to meet a set of carefully curated early stage businesses

Across a year Catapult curates our intake from over 1,000 businesses. As you can imagine we're choosy so what you get to see at an event like this is narrow, selective and worth paying attention to.

Will there be exacty the business you're looking for? Hard to tell ahead of the day! But... you wouldnt want to miss out, right?

We know from research that by the time these early ventures reach IPO or trade sale most of the value growth have been experienced by the lucky few who invested early.

Participants have been taken through a thorough selection process, and many have gone throgh one of our limited-intake programs. They are now ready to meet investors. There is a wide array of business maturity from early concept designs through to quite mature businesses with seed invested topping $1M and hundreds of active clients.

The businesses cover a wide array of market spaces and segments including

  • Ecommerce platforms
  • Apps
  • Booking platforms
  • SAAS systems
  • Food, cooking and food production
  • Co-working and other spaces
  • Marketing, social and influence
  • Building maintenance and products
  • Fashion and curation
  • Education
  • Advertising and marketplace platforms
  • Health care
  • POS
  • Mining systems
  • Logistics and delivery

Please come with an open mind, The evening is not just about pitching (although we will allow a bit of fun with this) but about creating relationships. For a majority of the people in the room this will be their first time with investors, and we hope you will be part of making this evening an outstanding success, giving these young companies the courage to continue the quest towards ‘funded’
