360° Mentorship

Mentoring is a Hatch cornerstone. HATCH is built around meaningful relationships. 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

Each year, the HATCH group is diverse and includes artists, inventors, award-winning authors, grammy-winning musicians, filmmakers, technologists, CEOs, social impact change makers, designers, and more.

“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 destined to.

Imagine them in a room together, teased out of their cocoons, grids off, brains on, glass flying everywhere: A NASA engineer tackles a problem for an entrepreneur. A scientist cracks open an idea for music distribution. An ad executive delivers insight to a health-care play. An inventor, architect, and designer sketching new models for education... Imagine that. Or just find yourself at HATCH.”


“I have been to the world’s top conferences and retreats, but I have never been surrounded, by people - and an environment so powerful as HATCH. I am re-HATCHed”


”This meeting of visionaries is the most real life example of the adage "come as a stranger, leave as a friend" that I have been involved in - a family is formed, and through the influence of others, one’s path becomes more meaningful.”


“Quite simply, HATCH makes us more dangerous. The companies that send their best and brightest to HATCH dramatically benefit from them returning refueled, re-energized, on the forefront of what’s next, and full of new collaboration opportunities. HATCH makes us more valuable to our work, ourselves, and the world.”
