Driving co-creation success without the silos

The CATALYST program's co-creation process goes beyond traditional ways of collaboration, by tapping a cross-functional team of partners with the category experience and knowhow to drive more success at every stage of your development process.

Keeping your consumer front and center

The consumer's voice is integral to the CATALYST program's partner ecosystem, providing key feedback to inform rapid prototyping, testing and refining direction. By validating assumptions and gathering feedback from consumers throughout the process, we can compress the usual time to achieve ready-to-launch results from months to just weeks.
