Eager beginnings

Initially, I found out about the Catalyst Team during a struggle for supremacy with my dissertation. As I walked by a career fair, I spontaneously decided I had time to kill so I headed in to have a chat with the various company representatives. Post procrastination, dragging my feet knowing I was returning to a dissertation dogfight I was beckoned over by Beth and Matthew for a chat. “You’ve worked with how many start-ups this year?”, “19”. I was sold. As someone with a curiosity for enterprise, I found the idea of working with different and interesting companies attractive. My only concern was about the true level of depth in experience I could obtain from each project if I worked on so ma

The Deep End

The 18th June had finally arrived; the day I began the start of my post graduate journey as a Catalyst Team Member at the Sussex Innovation Centre. I anticipated waking up filled with new job nerves, but after spending the best part of my summer stood behind a supermarket checkout, I was excited at the prospect of a new, challenging role. Eva’s famous last words of advice from my first interview were on repeat in my head: ‘You have to jump in otherwise you’ll be pushed!’, and whilst the thought of being out my depths filled me with dread, that’s exactly what I intended to do! After finding out I was successful in securing a job in the Catalyst team, the question I was constantly faced with f

Stereotype’s unbounded, Sinek seems to be utilising an incredibly narrow social brush to paint a complex issue. Calling upon what he proclaims as ‘very clear’ science, Sinek seem to have cracked the physiological, soci

EXTRA: Post-graduation Terror cured by Catalyst

First day as a Catalyst Team Member. Not only was this a joyous occasion for the fact that I would be beginning my Catalyst journey, but for the fact that I had just finished an internship the day before in London. During which, I endured many a restless night; drawing heavily on the hospitality of friends, and their sofas, for two months. The generosity of my friends and the fulfilling internship experience notwithstanding, it was a great relief to be back in Brighton, benefiting from the unrivaled happiness (and back support) that comes with your own bed, and setting foot back on the familiar ground that is the Sussex University campus. Prior to applying for Catalyst, I had just finished a
