Hatch’s mission is to support diverse and underrepresented entrepreneurs to test, start and grow their ventures.
Hatch has a range of programmes for businesses at different stages, and for different groups of entrepreneurs (including female founders, young entrepreneurs, and social entrepreneurs). We also have an enterprise hub near Elephant and Castle where we have workspace available.
Since 2014, Hatch has piloted a unique approach to enterprise incubation in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark and is now one of the UK’s leading community enterprise charities. We want to support 1000 entrepreneurs by 2020.
We help people build businesses out of the things that they love, and the things that they care about most. By supporting local entrepreneurs to do this, we want to create a movement that has a positive impact upon the needs of our local community and beyond.
We provide community-driven support to mission-driven enterprises of all stages in our local area and beyond via workshops, 1-1 support, mentoring and access to a network of business pioneers and experts. These elements work together to provide entrepreneurs with the focus, training, guidance and expertise needed to start or grow their business or charity. By helping our community of entrepreneurs to create profitable and sustainable organisations, we can create more impact whilst helping the individuals we work with to embrace the journey ahead (and create healthier and happier communities).
We know that we’ve set ourselves an ambitious target of supporting hundreds and thousands of entrepreneurs in their local community. We know that the journey will be full of challenges, but we also know it will be worth it. We hope that you will join us!
