We are on a mission to be the trusted source for fundraising strategies and execution for ventures across North America. Since its inception, Funding Catalyst has helped companies secure millions in non-dilutive capital, accelerating the growth and development of start-ups in the innovation ecosystem.

Thin Air Labs’ Funding Catalyst team is looking for a talented technical writer with a passion for entrepreneurship.
