Digital Catalyst

Please note that the Digital Catalyst scheme is now fully subscribed and therefore not able to enroll new clients at this time. We hope to have this popular scheme available again shortly and we will update the website as soon as we are able to open the scheme again.

Dedicated 1-1 support to help your business maximise digital opportunities for growth

Through our Digital Catalyst scheme, we can offer tailored one-on-one support with a technology specialist to help you take advantage of the opportunities digital can bring to your business’s growth strategy.


See how the Digital Catalyst helped Liz Drury Voiceovers:



Michael White of iHatch-Apps Ltd  was also recently supported by the Digital Catalyst and had this to say about the specialist support:

‘In his role as a ‘Digital Catalyst’ advisor for HEY Growth Hub, Ian has provided excellent help and advice for me and my start up, iHatch- Apps Ltd. Ian is methodical in his approach. He asks probing questions to understand the heart of a problem, offering helpful ways to overcome barriers and a different lens for looking at issues affecting the business.

Working with Ian has enabled me to be more goal-orientated and reflective in my day-to-day work. Throughout our time working together he was friendly and encouraging and I enjoyed the sessions. I’d certainly encourage other entrepreneurs and individuals to work with Ian and the Digital Catalyst initiative.’
