What is HATCH?

This is a fun, high-energy program designed to give entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch, and hopefully launch, their next idea. Organized by the BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation, HATCH facilitates connections between prospective entrepreneurs and those within a community who support them such as industry experts, professional service firms, banks, non-profits, business leaders and investors.

The program was so successful in 2017, with more than 300 people attending the final event, that the program has been expanded to include three regions. “WEDC was impressed with the success that HATCH had last year in supporting entrepreneurs in central Wisconsin and we look forward to seeing the same results as this innovative program expands to other regions of the state,” said Mark R. Hogan, secretary and CEO of WEDC. “We are pleased to be able to provide additional funding to offer more resources to entrepreneurs through programs like HATCH.”
