Catalyst is a customizable community platform built on open web principles.  The Catalyst core team will build functionality for the platform with the Catalyst brand in concurrence with the communities it serves.  The Catalyst platform must be useful and effective above all else.  

Only by offering easy-to-use, immersive governance, resource and project management experiences with proven value results can Catalyst attract community owners, projects, and contributors to its platform and thus accrue value as a platform and contributing member of the technology ecosystems it is built on.
