The Catapult team have a passion for business and enjoy supporting ambitious entrepreneurs and management teams who share this enthusiasm. Catapult Ventures is all about value creation through long term relationships – both with portfolio companies and those who have invested in the funds they manage.
Each member of the executive team has some direct portfolio responsibility, meaning they are active board members who play a key role in investee company strategy, hiring of senior personal and sometimes even the finding and meeting of customers. They are also heavily involved in financial strategy which can include leveraging banking relationships and the introduction of new investors for additional funding rounds.
At Catapult Ventures, portfolio responsibility is assigned to the executive that can add the most value. Simple.
