We Believe We Can Change The World for the Better by helping to significantly increase the presence of talented Black managers throughout Corporate America
The Catapult Leaders founding team knows that diverse talent is out there and it has been overlooked for far too long. We lean-into this quote from our founder:
“If you want different fish, you have to change where you fish. You won’t catch different people by only looking for them in the same places you’ve always looked for the people who are familiar to you. Talent is not limited to certain cultures, incomes, neighborhoods, or skin colors.”
Catapult Leaders is driven by experienced business leaders with specific goals and a bottom-line, results-driven focus with a clear mandate to make it happen.
We Recruit Exceptional College & Grad Students
We recruit high-potential college & grad students and accept only the top 10-15% of those who apply. These Student-Candidates are leaders with track records of success, focus, determination, problem solving, toughness, self-motivation, academic accomplishment, and learning agility.
Our Thorough Screening Process
With every applicant, we conduct face-to-face behavioral interviews, analyze academic performance, extracurricular activities, interests, and assess their potential for growth into high positions of leadership in business. We spend several hours per student and invest significant resources BEFORE we accept them as Student-Candidates in our program.
We Spend an Average of 16 Months with Each Student-Candidate
We get to know these wonderful candidates as they journey through their college years so that we can best understand their long-term potential. We dig deep to further develop this young talent, spending an average of 16 months with each candidate, getting to know their strengths, challenges, opportunities for improvement, career goals, and who they are as emerging young leaders. No other firm invests as much effort into developing young, college talent.
