Got a business idea? Join HATCH. Applications extended, close on Monday 7 Dec 2020.



The renewed, refreshed and recharged HATCH 2021 Entrepreneurial Programme for Auckland is open for applications.


If you’re Pasifika, aged 18-30, based in Auckland, and you’ve got a great idea or you’ve started a business, or have a passion for all things digital then HATCH is for you.


HATCH is our business readiness and digitally focused programme that can help you reach your leadership and entrepreneurial potential.    The learning is flexible, so you don’t have to stop work or commit to a crushing study schedule. You just need to be committed and keen to learn from some great business coaches with real world experience. HATCH’s unique programme has been developed for Pasifika. It’s culturally competent and has been revised and developed to help you react to the changing world we’re living in. So if you have an existing business – it could be commercial or a social enterprise – or are thinking of starting a business, or just have a great idea, then get in touch and hook up with HATCH. Launch, develop or grow your business in a culturally supportive environment!


What’s included?

  • Masterclasses and one-on-one sessions with highly successful NZ business and industry leaders in areas such as business structure, governance, procurement, logistics, and digital capability
  • Regular business health checks to keep your business on track, focused and growing
  • Tailored options so you can work or study alongside the programme
  • Opportunities to unlock finance and future investment channels
  • Support with marketing and scaling your business
  • Great partners to help you access and expand your network.
