Why did we start Catalyzer?

Catalyzer was started by entrepreneurs with a passion for sharing their know-how, skills and expertise with startups. In a world ridden with cut throat competition and negativity, Catalyzer is a sincere attempt to bring people together to form a commune and help each other build and share wealth; be it social or financial wealth. Catalyzer is a startup commune for entrepreneurs built with commitment and a vision to be a launch pad for startups.

“Every entrepreneur is certain his or her journey is unique. Each travels down the startup path without a roadmap and believes that no model or template could possibly apply. What makes some startups successful while others sell off the furniture often seems like luck. But it isn’t. The path to startup success is well-traveled and well-understood. There is a true and repeatable path to success”. – Steve Blank
