The Leasing Foundation has drawn together a group of insightful and influential industry leaders to create a blueprint for open innovation in leasing and asset finance. This group are The Catalysts. Their role is to start a new conversation about innovation. To do it they will draw on deep experience of innovation in their own companies, and of innovation by their partners, suppliers and customers, to identify the open innovation opportunities that are latent in the market and help the industry understand how to exploit them.
