The Stage 2 Capital Catalyst is back with another stellar group of 15 companies who are joining this year’s cohort. Investing both capital and expertise in founders to help them build repeatable revenue sits at the core of what we do and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the scaling journey of our 2023 founders.
Revenue Builders at Heart
Our companies get direct, 1:1 guidance from our LP base of elite go-to-market (GTM) executives. Our LP base has been specifically selected for their execution experience, domain expertise, and passion for helping founders in the Stage 2 Capital Catalyst. Our LP mentors represent the full spectrum of GTM from demand generation to CS in addition to revenue-related roles like recruiting, finance, product, legal, and others. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and companies like Gong, Box, Datadog, Atlassian, DocuSign, VMware, Talkdesk, Databricks, Talend, Stripe, Tableau, Blackline, 6sense, ServiceTitan, Zapier, Toast, Yelp, Udemy, Twilio, and Walkme among others. Our LP mentors work shoulder-to-shoulder with our founders to integrate the Catalyst Curriculum.
Execute and Build
The Catalyst guides companies in executing today with an eye on the future. To provide our founders with practical and actionable guidance, we take a high-touch, hands-on approach by curating an environment for our founders to execute go-to-market in real time. The mainstay of the Catalyst experience is the 11-week long Catalyst Curriculum, a step-by-step guide on implementing Stage 2 Capital’s Science of Scaling methodology and answering questions like “How do you optimize a discovery call? What should you look for in your first CS or marketing hire? How do you roll out PLG? Is PLG even right for your company?” Founders learn directly from the Stage 2 Capital team and our GTM LPs.
