You were invited to HATCH because you are amazing. 100 at a time. As you inspire others, you are inspired… HATCH is a network in which we mutually invest in one another and few things promote this movement of good more effectively than a collective and shared social tissue for the work we are doing for the world under one hash tag.
#becauseOfHATCH takes all of our work collectively full circle. USE IT.
Permanently attach #becauseOfHATCH to your projects, ideas, creations, speaking engagements, etc. By attaching the #becauseofHATCH tag to social media posts, packaging, conferences and causes, it creates a trackable MOVEMENT, and serves as our metric to continue to find partners to fund this ecosystem.
Used consistently, it not only promotes YOU, via HATCH, but serves as a trackable node in which you are all supporting each other, the global HATCH community, by helping it grow and thrive, supporting your ideas and visions with more infrastructure and potency.
