The team at Hatch are a fantastically diverse group of people who want to help shape a fairer economy and go that extra mile to support founders across the UK to imagine, launch and grow sustainable and impactful businesses. With more than 30 members of staff, we’re now one of the largest enterprise support organisations in the UK

Since 2014, the charity has supported more than 6,700 UK founders and grown our revenue to £1.7m annually. We were there for founders through some of the most turbulent and challenging times in recent history, but we’re determined to do even more over the coming years, and you can be a part of that.

What I love about working at Hatch is that everyone is just so excited and passionate about our mission to support underrepresented founders.
