Our program is unique among accelerator programs with its location alongside space-based DoD units and industrial corporations. By locating the Accelerator on the resource-rich Catalyst Campus in proximity to the customer, the customer discovery process is significantly reduced, from an average of two years in the typical government market to less than three months through the Catalyst Accelerator. Participating companies are designated an Air/Space Force Liaison to help companies navigate DoD and a Commercial Sherpa to assist companies to make vital connections they need to accelerate their business.
Companies join the Accelerator to build government connections, gain access to new commercial and government markets, accelerate and develop strategies and much more.
