Partner with us

Hatch works with entrepreneurs from diverse, under-served communities to grow smart ideas into successful, sustainable businesses. We do this through a mix of hands-on workshops, events, peer support, networking and 1-2-1 skilled volunteering support.

Since 2014, we’ve successfully supported more than 700 entrepreneurs through our core programmes and 5,000 people through our light-touch support, which includes online webinars and events. By 2025, we’re aiming for this figure to have grown to 25,000. It’s an ambitious target, but we’re an ambitious charity.

Partner with Hatch and help us do even more over the coming years.

I’m sure the partnership between Hatch and UBS’s Community Affairs programme will continue to bring opportunities for volunteers and the entrepreneurs they support.
