Creating more productive and diverse technology workforces

See how Catalyte transforms individuals, companies and communities.

Extraordinary technology talent from unexpected places

We know that tech talent is abundant. Opportunities to enter the tech industry are not.

For over 20 years, Catalyte has created high-performing, diverse and cost-effective technology workforces. We look beyond pedigree, education or previous experience to ignite the potential of people with an aptitude for technology – people others often overlook.

Our ability to develop talent provides employers the skilled tech workforces needed to grow and innovate. And it blazes a path for individuals to launch family-sustaining careers.

Diversity, equity, inclusion and quality. We don’t believe in different bars or standards for hiring. A more diverse workforce is a higher-quality workforce.

A history of challenging assumptions

In 2000, Catalyte’s founder Michael Rosenbaum was a Harvard economics and law fellow. As an advisor to the Clinton White House, he advocated that underserved urban populations contain just as many people with talent to succeed in software development as any other place. They are just overlooked by a system that values pedigree over innate ability.

To prove his point, Michael founded Catalyte, using machine learning to objectively discover and develop individuals who have the potential to become great software developers.

Better talent, better results

Catalyte continues to create productive, diverse, cost-effective, local, scalable and sustainable technology workforces. Our employees seamlessly integrate into any organization, delivering immediate and long-term value across a wide spectrum of roles and technologies.

Universal uplift

Catalyte can increase a person’s earnings almost 4x in just five years. Before joining Catalyte, the average salary of our program graduates was $25K. Five years after completing training, that salary average is $98K.

There’s almost no difference in the earning potential of someone who entered the program with or without a college degree – OR – someone who entered with or without prior technology experience.

By giving anyone with the aptitude the opportunity to launch new careers in the technology industry, Catalyte transforms individuals, companies and communities.
