The rules are simple. We don’t restrict the type of idea you can submit, but it’s important to remember this is about moving an idea forward. 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 community. HATCH events are fun, highly social and inspirational.
