At Hatch, we empower underrepresented entrepreneurs from across the UK to imagine, launch and grow sustainable and impactful businesses through tailored support, community and partnerships. We offer world-class support to entrepreneurs, mainly through our courses and workshops. We’re not typical of the charity sector.

Now we’re looking at our next big milestones: Doubling the size of our team and delivering 25,000 enterprise support opportunities for underrepresented founders by 2025. These are deliberately ambitious goals – we like that it scares us a bit!Our Hatch values are:We are inherently experimental We believe in human potentialWe create meaningful connectionsWe are committed to achieving equityWe aim to embody these values in everything we do internally as a team and in all our work with founders, funders and partners. In practice this means we are transparent with data and information, we trust each other to try new things, to learn from mistakes and to collaborate on strategic decisions, drawing on our collective expertise, experience and networks. We are influenced by lean management philosophy, and we are constantly looking for ways to improve and innovate in our programmes and in the way that we work.We are a small organisation with big ambitions to grow, offering the right candidate a great opportunity for personal and professional growth.
