Participants in Catalyst's latest Co-Founders programme win £10k Proof of Concept funding to help develop their innovative startups

catalyst (1Great news from Northern Ireland, where 10 promising new startups have won £10k Proof of Concept grants following participation in Catalyst’s Co-Founders programme.

Co-Founders is an 11-week programme for first time entrepreneurs and early-stage start-ups and is delivered by Catalyst, an independent, not-for-profit organisation focused on fostering entrepreneurship and innovation. The programme brings together talented, skilled and ambitious individuals from technical and commercial backgrounds, to meet like-minded people interested in developing new product ideas focused on technology, engineering and science. 

Teams who pitched for the Proof of Concept funding were drawn from the most recent cohort of Co-Founders participants, who completed the programme in June. 

The winners were:

Atlas Fitness – a machine learning app that creates custom fitness routines.

Stable Pro – an online platform to better manage the care and wellbeing of horses.

Path – a health tracking app designed for endometriosis sufferers.

Bioliberty Ltd – a robotic solution for sufferers of hand weakness.

Moving More – A device that tracks sedentary behaviour and encourages movement.

Tootsie Feet – a technology enabled children’s shoe brand.

Movetru – a wearable device that aims to reduce injury and enhance rehabilitation.

Indie Communications – a cloud-based app for measuring mobile phone signal.

Star 3 Group – an educational tool to help teach children self-care.

Belfast Lifestyle Medicine – an app for IBS management

share-image.Jacqueline McCann, Programme Manager at Catalyst, said: “The funding awarded today will provide an opportunity for the winning teams to pursue their ideas and contribute to the thriving innovation ecosystem in Northern Ireland, as previous participants in Co-Founders have done. We believe that increasing the number of innovative startups in Northern Ireland can play a major role in the recovery of the economy from the coronavirus pandemic.”

We look forward to seeing how these innovative startups develop!
