What is Co-Founders?
Co-Founders is a one night a week programme, run by Catalyst, for anyone who wants to be a co-founder in a start-up team and has the desire to explore the viability of a business idea.
Both students and staff from Queen’s have previously participated.
The Co-founders programme run by Catalyst brings together a wide range of people from diverse backgrounds, allowing you to meet potential collaborators you wouldn’t even know existed.
Through our learning workshops, mentors, events and networking, we’ll help you build a team to ‘try out’ creating a start-up in a safe, risk-free environment. Pre-formed teams are also welcome to join.
The programme is based on Design Thinking and will guide and inform the participant of the process.
The programme outline:
- Team Formation
- Problem Exploration
- Design Sprints with Pitches
The programme typically recruits during Semester 1 to take place during Semester 2.
