The Investment Catalyst: A showcase of chemistry-led innovation for the investment community

The Royal Society of Chemistry presents to you the 10th edition of the Investment Catalyst. The event will be held hybrid on 19 May 2022 either at Burlington House or online. The 8 companies pitching are: AlbothermCambridge Photon TechnologyExactmerFigura AnalyticsLow Sulphur FuelsMediSieveOxford nanoSystems  and Somnus Scientific.

Our aim is to connect the UK’s leading chemistry-focused start-ups and scale-ups with angel and early stage investors through the Royal Society of Chemistry’s vast network.

Over the last six years, the Investment Catalyst has presented 63 leading innovators using chemistry to revolutionise life sciences, energy supply, construction, food and drink, the automotive industry and more. We have seen our cohort of businesses raise a total of £4.5m in funding from attending investors, and we’re thrilled to have seen an incredible exit from one of our finalists at a phenomenal £623m!

The event is open to investors, angel syndicates and groups and VC funds.  If you do not fit into one of these categories we reserve the right to cancel your registration.

Registration for the event is free

Chemistry-led innovation represents a broad and compelling opportunity for early-stage investors as it is integral to supporting an array of sectors and focuses. Businesses using chemistry at the centre of their technology offer possibilities that can drastically impact and improve the lives and work of citizens and communities everywhere, and together we are delighted to create a platform to showcase innovators first-hand to potential investors.
