Youth Growing Businesses
is a new "incubator" initiative whereby youth-created and led
individual businesses, programs and projects receive support and technical
assistance to develop into independent non profit and for profit small
and medium sized enterprises. This initiative is part of Catalyst’s
broader work on supporting individual innovation and entrepreneurship
in young adults.
Catalyst is currently incubating and developing:
• Heart of Chaos (HOC) Artisan Collective for emerging artists
• Soul Revolution, a magazine created by emerging designer Freddie
Vega that employs the talents of
emerging writers, poets, and graphic designers to highlight emerging creatives
in all mediums.
• Heart of Chaos Art Academy Opening Summer 2013
Catalyst seeks funds for capacity building of its incubator initiative
and to develop knowledge resources for incubator-grown business managers
and address the financial constraints faced by entrepreneurs and new businesses.
Its special emphasis on the need of under recognized and underserved teens
and young adults to develop their creative voice and share it with the
community is aligned with research on building community and connection
with marginalized and alienated youth.
