Hatch 2018 Submission Form
Hatch is a community-based startup pitch platform to help develop “napkin” ideas into early-stage companies created and produced by BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation, along with NEWaukee. We don’t restrict the type of idea you can submit, but it’s important to remember we are looking for high-growth ideas that have scale.

The rules are simple. At Hatch presenters have five minutes to pitch in front of judges and a live audience for the chance to win a $2,000 award and be selected as a semi finalist for the final Hatch. The audience has a chance to evaluate and vote for their favorite idea alongside the judges. Beyond the prize money, this is your chance to get the business idea that has been rattling around in your head, out in front of a supportive investors, businesses, and community members. Hatch events are fun, highly social and inspirational.

The winners from each regional Hatch event will pitch at the Hatch finale for $5,000 cash and other business services.
