One of the key reasons why Northern California is a hotbed of technology innovation and investment is that there is a culture of collaboration, even between groups that could be seen as competitors. In contrast, New York's approach is far more 'cutthroat,' meaning that organizations often work against each other out of habit. The Hatchery is breaking this mold by fostering an environment in which innovation can thrive. As a result, we have forged a real bond with entrepreneurs and investors who trust us as an impartial forum for them to meet and build the connections they need to grow.
The Hatchery was founded in 2007 on the fundamental principle that all technology companies have the right to access business experts and leading-edge information. We believe that New York City is the best place for innovation, communication and finance to create a leading national technology hub.
