Launching a startup is not easy, especially when you don’t always have the right resources and tools to help you succeed. The Catalyst Fund Toolkit offers you tools across three main areas: customer trust creation, risk management and product/market fit. These tools are tailored to the needs of startups that serve low-income customers in emerging markets, through our experience working with early-stage fintech companies around the world.

As the manager of Catalyst Fund, BFA, is pleased to host this special webinar series covering each of these toolkits in the coming weeks:


Webinar: Design for Trust

Trust is an essential factor in financial transactions, but what is trust made up of? Fintech companies providing digital financial services often find it difficult to build trust with their customers because of a lack of physical contact. However, managing the principles of competency, appearance, control, transparency, & commitment can be great drivers for building trust with customers.

Webinar: Manage Risk

Running an innovative startup is not without its set of risks and challenges. But understanding these risks, monitoring and managing them with mitigation strategies can help lower a company's risk profile. The second webinar of the series provides a framework for de-risking internal and external factors, while helping founders and CEOs see the overall picture of their firm's health and how to take action on their high priority risks.

Webinar: Get to Product/Market Fit

One of the biggest questions early-stage companies have to answer is whether their product is right for their targeted market. That is to say, Product-Market Fit can be thought of as the measure of how well your product satisfies the market. The Product/ Market toolkit covers the journey where companies start with a pain-point, a passion or a hunch, and go all the up to the final stage of optimization where they scale up. This final stage of scaling up includes a perfect combination of visibility, desirability, and feasibility of the product, in the market they are serving.
