WE Hatch

Unleash potential

There is a massive amount of data and surveys, including our own research, that indicates there is a huge pent up demand and opportunity for tremendous impact by empowering women students and women in the community to achieve greater success in entrepreneurial activities. Women are disadvantaged in entrepreneurship enrollment, networking, venture capital raises and access to resources, yet they desire to make societal impact and achieve financial success and control of their lives. It is estimated that several trillions of global economic impact is left on table by leaving women behind in the entrepreneurial equation.

WE Hatch seeks to unleash the potential of creative, innovative and entrepreneurial women through curriculum, programming, mentorship, and venture funding support.
