Scalare invests in social impact platform Catalyser
Updated: Oct 26, 2022
We are delighted to let you know we have invested in Catalyser, a B2B SaaS solution for companies to manage, measure and report on their corporate social responsibility programs, employee volunteering and donation activities. As a certified B-Corp, Catalyser puts its purpose at the heart of what it does and Scalare Partners has been impressed by the passion and quality of the founder team, the strong product-market fit and the revenue growth profile from inception. The team is looking forward to supporting the business as it scales.
WHAT DOES CATALYSER DO?
For companies, corporate social responsibility programs are a key driver for brand and reputation management, employee engagement and building customer trust. With the global tightening of regulation for sustainability and ESG reporting drives, the market was primed for a SaaS solution for CSR and employee giving which integrates with core HR software. Catalyser is a white-label solution for companies to manage all aspects of their corporate CSR programs.
Choosing from ten giving modules, a company can design a custom platform using their own charity partners and causes as well as to measure and report on engagement and impact. The employee is empowered to volunteer, donate, fundraise, access rewards, do pro bono projects and more, all while measuring the personal and collective company social impact.
WHY DID SCALARE INVEST?
Catalyser is at the intersection of the growing global ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), SaaS market and the booming HR Tech market.
Globally, the HR software market represents $580 billion/year, and in Australia, the demand is steadily increasing for purpose-built offerings to deliver specific business outcomes, such as CSR and employee engagement.
While the Catalyser offering can be deployed across businesses of all sizes, it is especially the medium to large organisations with 200+ staff who benefit greatly from a multi-feature platform.
Catalyser has visibly demonstrated product-market fit and currently serves a range of Blue-chip enterprise clients.
Scalare has a long-standing relationship with Co-Founders and Co-CEOs Angela Kwan and Aivee Robinson and have great confidence in the team. As Co-CEOs Angela and Aivee will be the driving force behind the Marketing, Growth and Sales, while the General Manager Martin Lo, will manage the expansion of the team and the broader business operations.
