The Hatchery is powered by the Baker Institute for Entrepreneurship, Creativity & Innovation whose mission is to empower students through the lens of entrepreneurship. This summer will be an immersive entrepreneurial experience in partnership with incredible individuals and departments on campus who fully believe in this mission
WHAT IS THE HATCHERY?
The Hatchery is an immersive, full time learning experience where participants apply design thinking and lean startup methods to develop solutions and test potential business ideas. We want students who are passionate about learning the foundational skills of entrepreneurship while working on problems that matter.
The Hatchery will make its summer home in the “Innovation Triangle” on the Asa Packer Campus, anchored at FML’s open creativity space on the 6th floor and utilizing the vast array of technologies available through LTS, dedicated outdoor space and access to maker spaces on campus.

Coaching & Mentoring
Each day, work with a community of students, faculty & staff who want to change the world and believe they can.
You’ll develop your own ideas, while constantly collaborating with cohort members.
Don’t forget the fun stuff!
Hatchery community events will bring the whole group together!
You’ve got ideas, but it can be hard to know where to start. The Hatchery consists of different “Nests”, each with a different topic of focus.
Nests are led by faculty/staff/community experts who will help students develop problem based ideas into entrepreneurial solutions.
Check out our nests from Summer 2018. Summer 2019 nests will be announced later this year.
