Hatch Enterprise

London

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. 


Since 2014, we’ve grown our revenue to £600K, something that takes the average social enterprise at least fifteen years. Now we’re looking at our next big milestones: Passing the million turnover mark, and 10X’ing our impact. We want to do this by 2025. This is a deliberately ambitious target – we like that it scares us a bit!


We’re not typical of the charity sector. As you would expect from a charity focused on teaching start-up skills, we think and act like a business. Our programmes are run by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. 


In the last seven years, we’ve worked with over 3,500 diverse and impact founders and we want to do even more in the next five years. To support our founders, we have built a diverse network of partners, funders and investors who share our vision. We are currently developing our first small grants fund in order to connect our existing support programmes with the financial support founders need to test and launch their ideas.


At Hatch, we value transparency, openness and collaboration. We practice open-book management and strategic decisions are made collaboratively so we can fully draw on the expertise, experience and networks we have.


Hatch is an organisation that loves experimentation and trying things out. 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. 


Hatch’s work has been recognised in recent years with a number of accolades, including: 


  • Being featured in the NatWest SE100 Index 2020 as one of the top 100 social enterprises in the UK, as well as being a finalist for the same awards in 2019.  
  • Winning the 2017 Enterprising Britain Awards in the ‘Building Enterprise Skills’ category for Hatch’s incubator programme.
  • Shortlisted for the 2017 Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards in the category of ‘Community Partner’ for our work with Deutsche Bank supporting over 50 mission driven businesses in South London.
