About us

We support underrepresented entrepreneurs to develop the knowledge, confidence, and skills needed to launch and grow a business. We do this through delivering workshops, events, and 1:1 volunteering support, connecting entrepreneurs in a vibrant supportive community, and building networks and partnerships with other organisations who share our vision.

Since 2014, Hatch has supported close to 8,000 founders, 6744 founders through our community events and mentoring, and 1079 founders through our in-depth programmes such as Hatch Launchpads, Incubators and Accelerators, on their journey to build sustainable, impactful businesses, bringing them together with the experience and skills of  more than 1000 mentors and coaches in the process. Up until early 2020, the majority of the entrepreneurs we worked with were based in London and the South East. Having since taken our portfolio of support programmes online, increasingly we now work with entrepreneurs from right across the UK. 

Who we help

We recognise that talent is equally distributed but opportunities are not. Too many people are unfairly prevented from realising their entrepreneurial potential to positively impact their own lives, the lives of others in the community and wider society. We’re working to change that by focusing our support on underrepresented founders, which includes women and other marginalised genders, racially minoritised groups, founders with disabilities, and those without a previous work or business background, as well as impact founders to launch, grow and thrive in their businesses.
