Practical and Hands-On Support

A great strategy is no use without the time and resources to act on it. Sussex Innovation's Catalyst Team places skilled University of Sussex graduates and placement year students into your business when there are too many projects and not enough hands. They're fully mentored and supported by our senior advisors, bringing fresh energy into your team and relieving the pressure of your to-do list. We make the internship process flexible, efficient and stress-free, giving you back time to spend on the business.

Our Testimonials

"We had a great experience of bringing in interns on an ad-hoc basis into the company. In everything from modifying our website, handling social media and data collection, the access to resources we need from the Catalyst Team has been extremely helpful."

Graeme Cox - co-founder, Emteq

"The Catalyst Team has actually been a big part of Finder's growth. It's the ideal solution...to be able to phone up and get some more resources allocated is fantastic. Really good grads, from a really good university, and we've actually gone on to hire one of them full-time."
