The Hatchery - New York Dot Comers Pages

What is a HATCHERY?
It is Venture Collaboration.

In New York's competitive venture climate, entrepreneurs often lack the business connections and brand awareness to get the attention of potential funders, and at the same time many investors don't have a pipeline into early-stage technology and Internet companies. The Hatchery provides a unique funnel for innovators to interact with a wide range of investors, present their plans, receive expert feedback, bring in strong leadership, and pave the way for them to receive angel and institutional funding. At the heart of The Hatchery's model is the Gauntlet, an interactive process that gives entrepreneurs seven minutes to present their business models to a range of investors, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. Think of it as "American Idol meets Venture Capital."


One of the key reasons why Northern California is a hotbed of technology innovation and investment is that there is a culture of collaboration, even between groups that could be seen as competitors. In contrast, New York's approach is far more cutthroat, meaning that organizations often work against each other out of habit. The Hatchery is breaking this mold by fostering an environment in which innovation can thrive. As a result, we have forged a real bond with entrepreneurs and investors who trust us as an impartial forum for them to meet and build the connections they need to grow.
