In our small corner of the universe, a catalyst is someone who simply put, creates the world they want to live in.
Catalysts come from all walks of life, backgrounds, lived experiences and parts of the world. What unites them is a shared understanding of their potential and power to change the world for the better.
They do so by using their hands to make things, their hearts to be able to empathize with others and their minds to shift perspectives.
As a result, catalysts help generate new ideas to solve societal problems (social innovation). Some go one step further and create projects or start businesses that offer a product or service in a financially sustainable way that also has a social or environmental purpose and impact (social enterprise).
Cx has supported many catalysts engaged in both social innovation and social entrepreneurship over the last few years and we invite you to read about some of them who went through our CoPilot programs.
