Startup Catalyst

Leveraging an open ecosystem that connects businesses and startups to deliver dynamic innovation strategies at scale

Making vital connections between Corporates and Startups is at the heart of Capgemini Startup Catalyst. It is a complete open ecosystem where businesses can access new thinking and expertise to solve specific challenges and exploit opportunities, making seamless connections that facilitate rapid value creation.

We identify the most promising Startups in every sector and domain, in every market around the world. Once we’ve spotted potential, we work with the Startup to assess its strengths and market opportunities, in partnership with Early Metrics. We then integrate the Startup’s technology into our portfolio of Capgemini resources to offer our clients a complete solution to their business challenge.
