Societe Generale’s flagship startup accelerator program, Catalyst, has been highly collaborative in bringing together innovation experts, enterprise-relevant technology startups, fintech, incubators, funds and academic institutions with Societe Generale business leaders to deliver actionable solutions and insightful research, in areas of strategic interest to the banking industry.

The Catalyst program by Societe Generale was a defining moment in our journey. At the end of the program, we had the ultimate joy of signing up, Societe Generale as our customer. This has led to our business grow leaps and bounds, and today we have more than 10 large financial services organizations, as our customers. Without Catalyst, this wouldn’t have been possible.
