Ambition

What are we capable of together?

We value people’s ambitions for their own careers, for the development of advanced digital technology and for the startups, corporates and other organisations with whom we partner. We help channel the ambition of UK startups into traditional industries and focus the growth of exciting new products and services.

Openness

True inspiration comes from collaboration.

Working on the biggest challenges and juggling multiple projects, we take on work that pushes the boundaries of technology. We know that only by promoting and embracing diversity and inclusion in all we do, can we truly inspire success in ourselves and in others.

Curiosity

Working at the forefront of advanced digital technology often means taking a leap of faith.

Alongside many of the UK’s leading universities and research organisations, we’re working with a range of people who are truly curious, who take risks and push boundaries to see what’s possible and how to drive it towards commercial reality.

    HEAD OF PRODUCT INNOVATION

I joined as an intern in 2019, and was given the opportunity to use my initiative and voice my ideas. It equipped me with the essential skill of juggling several projects at once and perfectly positioned me to qualify for a permanent role at Digital Catapult. I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with technical experts and develop relationships with several teams.
