Hatchlings Selected for The Hatch 2015


Eighty student applications were narrowed to ten of the best business ideas to compete for investor funding in The Hatch 2015. The Dallas-Hamilton Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership announced the 10 Hatchlings at the Global Entrepreneurship Week event on November 20.  These Hatchlings are paired with an Alumni Mentor to make a business presentation in April to a panel of Falcon Investors in an event similar to the hit television show “Shark Tank.”

The Hatchlings include the following students and their business ideas:

Michael Cervantes - operate a Hibachi food truck in northwest Ohio targeting 20 – 30 year olds.

Meredith Keller - develop an app for monitoring Cystic Fibrosis.

Mark Kohn – start up “U-Beequity”, a beekeeping business.

Matthew Snider – design TRIck Shot, a three-in-one game table for Cornhole, Hillbilly Golf, and Beer Pong.

Haksun Lee - create a teddy bear to teach children different languages.

Thomas Steven - develop a campus taxi.

Allen Viancourt  - launch “Tech Turf: The Next generation of Turf Fields”.

Elsa Vogel – design personalized clothing through a company called “Pieces of Me”.

Devon Williams - create “MuSync,” an app enabling real-time music sharing.

Congratulations to these outstanding young entrepreneurs! They will present their business ideas at The Hatch on April 8, 2015 at the Stroh Center.
