2018 agenda


one of the best features of hatch, is that your time is organised into “sprints”, which take you through the entire lifecycle of a typical start-up - from ideation to pitch.

Normally this takes most startups years, but we whizz you through it one weekend, ensuring you walk away with tech skills as well as business development skills!
