What is Hatch?
The Hatch AVL Foundation serves as a coordinator and catalyst for connecting the critical elements of the Asheville startup ecosystem to our members.
Asheville needs innovation, new businesses, and new jobs. Entrepreneurs and startups are a proven path to deliver innovation. To succeed, entrepreneurs need each other, they need a network of support resources, and they need know-how.
Hatch has created an agile test bed, or learning lab, where the best and strongest capabilities of the Asheville entrepreneurial ecosystem are focused on a group of high-growth potential, Asheville-headquartered, small businesses and startups.
The Hatch building is located at 45 S. French Broad Ave. in Downtown Asheville. Visitors may park on the street, in our lot to the rear of the building off S. Ann St., or across the street at the United Way (after 5:30 PM).
Hatch AVL Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. Donations and sponsorships will be utilized towards physical space, out-of-town speakers, special projects, collaboration with University and High School students, and special events. We invite you to participate in accelerating entrepreneurship in our region. Please contact us to get involved.
