Looking to get more involved this year? Want to join an amazing entrepreneurial community? Are you interested in entrepreneurship? Join the Hatch Team!


There are two ways you can join Hatch.

How do you want to get involved?


If you're an undergraduate student at Carleton U with a business idea, we want to help you get started on turning that idea into some concrete!

After years of hosting a variety of workshops and studying other accelerator programs like Invest Ottawa’s ‘Summer Company’ and Ottawa U’s ‘Startup Garage’, we have created a new format for our program.


The program focuses on mentoring you over an 8-week period, all with the final goal of continuing your journey through to Lead to Win. More so than education, however, our program focuses on motivation by keeping you excited and engaged every week with more frequent workshops, meetings, and speaker events.

To get started, all you have to do is pitch your business idea at our biannual Pitch Night! Don't worry - it doesn't have to be perfect. We will be hosting an Info Night beforehand to give you some tips.

But, once you've pitched and received an acceptable review from the judges, you'll be admitted into our Cohort! Sign up for Pitch Night by filling out the form below. You can see when Pitch Night and our info sessions are happening by scrolling down.
