ASPIRING STUDENT ENTREPRENEURS ‘HATCH’ THEIR BUSINESSES WITH INVESTOR SUPPORT


Twelve BGSU students competed in "The Hatch" April 9, presenting their business plans to six investors as they vied for funds to launch their ideas.

This year, more than 1,300 people gathered in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Lenhart Grand Ballroom to watch the aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to the panel of investors, similar to the television show "Shark Tank." "The Hatch" event was also streamed live to audiences around the world. Nearly 70 Hatch Watch parties took place around the country, with one taking place in Germany.

Ten out of the 12 were offered some form of future support ranging from actual funding to grant-writing services and even legal services. While not all 10 students were funded at the event, the investors felt strongly that even though their business might not be quite ready to launch, their business ideas were worth pursuing.
