How it Works
Create Your Idea
Build Your Venture Page for Your Business
Your venture page will help you communicate your vision and strategy to your team, mentors and potential customers and stakeholders. Your idea page can be private or public. If you make it public, you can change your mind at any time. Your idea page can be for an existing business, a future business or a business concept for an academic project.
Build Your Team
The success of any business is based on the quality of your team. Add team members, mentors, coaches, advisors and business partners to your page to help along the way. Need help in a certain area? Looking for a mentor? Use our PitchIn widget to market what you are in need of and connect with new collaborators.
Develop Your Feedback Loop
Feedback is critical to evolving your idea into a successful business model. Whether you have a live business entity today, are launching in the future, or are presenting as part of a class project, customer feedback is the number one proof point you will need to ensure you have not drunk the Kool-aid. Share your ideas to receive likes, shares and comments.
Funding Your Business
Crowdfunding to raise funds
All businesses need money to launch and grow. Rewards-based crowdfunding is one way to help you raise the funds you need to start. Tap into HatchPad's crowdfunding platform to raise money and connect it to your business page. It's a great way to make 2 + 2 = 10.
