Hatch is an interesting concept which combines co-work space with education for entrepreneurs, and local investment funding for it's clients. Each client receives a designated amount of work-space and access to meeting rooms depending upon the plan they choose. Clients are responsible for putting out educational material on making a successful business (or non-profit) that Hatch then uses to help educate other members. Hatch works with local banks and investors to educate them on the benefits of investing directly into local businesses. These investors are then connected with their clients and either receive a portion of the business or repayment with interest in exchange for the funds they invest. In short a potential client would see Hatch as a place they can get support and education on turning their idea into a business as well as help getting local direct investors into their business. They work with for profit and non-profit businesses but they do have a couple of requirements. It must be in the business strategy to remain local. They don't want start-ups that get an idea going planning to sell out to a national or international firm. Second the business must be one that creates a positive footprint in the community. That is entrepreneurs who bring a goods or services to market not resource depleting businesses like oil or natural gas firms would be. The place has a good vibe and friendly atmosphere and is a viable choice for someone wishing to start their own business.
