How Catapult started
Catapult was developed by the non-profit organization Women Deliver in 2011.
Maz Kessler and Jill Sheffield, President of Women Deliver, had looked for the opportunity for a new innovative fund for girls and women. In early 2011, they decided the time was right to explore the development of a new fund. With Women Deliver as the institutional base, they started designing and building Catapult.
The goal was to create a place where anyone can invest in girls and women and help move the world towards gender equality.
