Meet the 6 newest ventures to join the HATCH Accelerator

At entrepreneurship@UBC, we work with ventures across industries propelling the incredible ideas and innovations from the university out into the world to make phenomenal impacts. Since 2013, we’ve helped hundreds of early stage innovators develop their solutions into companies, building the ventures and leaders of tomorrow.

Through our CORE and Lab2Launch Venture Building programs and Social Venture and Climate Venture Studio streams, we nurture teams who grind tirelessly to move their company from idea to market across our 4 phase, stage-gated program, ending in the opportunity to apply for Phase 4: The HATCH Accelerator.

In partnership with the Institute of Computing, Information and Cognitive Systems (ICICS), HATCH takes founders to the next level, where they carve their own path and prepare to scale. Twice a year we usher in a new cohort of game changing HATCH ventures and we can't wait for you to meet them.
