Meet the 2018 Hatchlings

Bowling Green State University student entrepreneurs will present their business ideas to alumni investors during The Hatch on April 19, vying for funds to launch their businesses in a format similar to the popular television show "Shark Tank." The event will be streamed to Hatch watch parties across the country and to several countries around the world.

What sets The Hatch apart from similar events is that the alumni investors make equity investments, providing real money for students to launch real businesses. To date, more than $500,000 has been committed to student startups.
