Imagine gathering up a hundred innovators, artists, makers, creators, educators, risk-takers, influencers, and mavericks… people who want to shake the world by its ankles. And are. Imagine them in a room together, teased out of their cocoons, grids off, brains on, glass flying everywhere:

A musician tackles a problem for an entrepreneur. A scientist cracks open an idea for music distribution. An ad-guy delivers insight to a health-care play. An inventor, architect, and educator sketching new models for learning… Imagine that. Or just find yourself at HATCH.



Central to hatch is cultivating the next generation of creative leaders. Each year, HATCH selects up to 10 “Groundbreakers” who have shown exceptional talent and dedication to their work. So far, HATCH has sponsored more than 100 Groundbreakers and has impacted over 5,000 students directly. See Groundbreakers Alumni

360° Mentorship

Mentoring is a Hatch cornerstone. What began as top-down mentorship has evolved into a ‘360’ mentorship approach; bottom-up and peer to peer. We encourage — if not expect — all HATCH community members to mentor, share, and challenge one another. Learn more about 360° Mentorships
