As we navigate the global pandemic of COVID19, the Catalyst Accelerator is thankful for the efforts of alumni companies and others that are working toward solutions.  We are living in uncertain times, however, and with that in mind, we will alter and flex all events accordingly.  Our team wishes you only health and prosperity through this time, and we look forward to the continuing connections when it is safe to do so.

Cyber for Space Applications

The Catalyst Accelerator’s newest cohort will be Cyber for Space Applications this fall.

A Different Kind of Accelerator

The AFRL/RV sponsored Catalyst Space Accelerator is a defense and national security industry accelerator, headquartered on the Catalyst Campus for Technology and Innovation in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Catalyst Campus for Technology & Innovation is a collaborative ecosystem where industry, small business, workforce training, entrepreneurs, startups and venture capital intersect with Colorado’s aerospace and defense industry to create community, spark innovation and stimulate business growth.

Our program offers a semi-residential 12-week program for second stage businesses. We provide office space, investment, Air Force liaisons, subject matter experts, a collaborative ecosystem and resources necessary to nurture the next level of innovation.

Unique Customer Discovery

The Accelerator’s mission is to promote technology advancement for the warfighter and guide technology transfer from the government to the commercial market and vice versa.

Our program is unique among accelerator programs due to its co-location in Colorado Springs with Air Force Space Command. The Catalyst Space Accelerator connect participating companies with uses and potential customers from these military installations in order to significantly reduce the customer discovery process from two years in the typical government market to less than three months.

Partnerships & Sponsorships

Partnerships with Catalyst Space Accelerator take many forms, from commercial sherpas who adopt a cohort company throughout the Accelerator, to subject matter experts and mentors, who provide guidance to the entire group through short-term engagements.

There are several levels of sponsorship available, each providing opportunities to be included on print and promotional materials, host events, and mentioned alongside the Accelerator in audiences of high-level public and private decision makers.
