For Catalyst’s launch forty-three passionate and talented individuals gathered at iH’s fantastic new space in the Tempest Building on Tithebarn Street to enjoy an exciting (and unconventional!) first day of the programme.

The first session saw the group take part in creative activities to encourage teamwork and increase understanding of the different roles within a team.

In a surprisingly short amount of time, the tribe came together and were able to identify and share their similar passions and drive. The iH team were thrilled to see first-hand the openness participants had to explore and learn.

What was the verdict?

All of the participants — including our own Angel interns — seemed to really enjoy the day, and iH were flooded with positive comments.

One of the major draws of a programme like Catalyst — for both businesses and participants alike — is that people get to participate in group learning and personal development activities like this, as well as gaining real-world working experience in their industry of interest.

Harriet Bridge, said:

“I think the Catalyst programme is a fantastic opportunity to extend my digital skill set. The graduation at the end of the programme is also something I am looking forward to as it will be a chance to celebrate everyone’s achievements together.”

Passion for Innovation | Passion for Liverpool

Angel Solutions are very proud to be working so closely with Innovators Hub as they seek to build up talent and improve skill retention in the tech sector in Liverpool.

We’re so excited to see what the future holds for these first Catalyst participants, and are looking forward to seeing the Innovators Hub programme grow in future.

We are confident, along with many other businesses and key stakeholders in the city, that Innovators Hub will only help to nurture that talent further.
