HATCH Activation at C2 Montreal

For the fourth year in a row this May over 50 HATCHers were invited by the organizers of C2 Montreal, to be a part of an immersive three-day event hosted by global creative agency Sid Lee.  C2 is a truly unique experience – the “superbowl of creative conferences” that brings together commerce and creativity to explore trends, opportunities, disruptions and major shifts on the horizon. Over 5,000 executives across continents and industries to challenge their biases, shift their perspective and explore completely new ways of doing business.  Starting with the annual C2 kick-off dinner, and building momentum throughout the week, HATCHers connected with thought leaders and entrepreneurs from around the world, sharing ideas and mentorship opportunities.  The video recap captures the magic of the HATCH + C2 equation.
