Our global outreach is underway to find early-stage semiconductor startups to join our incubator


Silicon Catalyst is the world’s only incubator focused exclusively on semiconductor solution startups. 
We address the challenges faced by startups while guiding them from concept to product. 

In the past 30 months, Silicon Catalyst has reviewed over 250 startups from the U.S., Europe, and Asia. The 19 startups admitted since 2015 to the incubator are developing innovative solutions in a variety of areas including energy harvesting, wearables, silicon photonics, memory technology, loT, high performance computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, wireless communications, and biomedical devices.

The Silicon Catalyst incubator utilizes our coalition of in-kind and strategic partners to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of developing semiconductor solutions. With our world-class network of mentors to advise startups, we are addressing their many challenges in moving from idea to realization and business success. We have provided our Portfolio Companies with a path to funding, free access to tools, testing and shuttle runs, along with advice on proper corporate governance and strategic execution.
