Building a Stronger Outdoor
Excellence through Outdoor Industry Engagement
Catapult Innovation Labs' Outdoor mentors are essential to furthering our mission because they guide Accelerator teams through the process of building, launching, and growing a successful outdoor startup. Catapult mentors are industry experts who are determined to make meaningful, strategic relationships with Catapult Outdoor Accelerator teams.
We have seen the importance of this first hand, and it is no secret that mentorship is one of the most valuable assets for growth.
