SAVE THE DATE | APRIL 23, 2020

BGSU student entrepreneurs (hatchlings) present their business ideas to alumni investors during The Hatch, vying for funds to launch their businesses in a format similar to the popular television show “Shark Tank.”

What sets The Hatch® apart from similar events is that the BGSU alumni investors make equity investments providing real money for students to incubate real businesses. To date, more than $600,000 has been committed to student startups.

The Paul J. Hooker Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, serving as "Hatch headquarters," is one of 20 centers worldwide recognized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

Stay tuned as the 2020 Hatchlings are selected.

Deadline November 1, 5 p.m.
