“You may not think you’re interested in the entrepreneurial space but Hatchery Ideate will change that. The supportive learning environment allows participants to explore and refine ideas in teams from diverse personal and academic backgrounds.”

Jessie Nguyen Bachelor of Communication in Social Inquiry & Bachelor of Laws

“Hatchery Ideate summons creative individuals across all the different fields and faculties, who enjoy thinking outside the box. The program helped me reframe problems and ideas to create meaningful solutions that push the outer-limits of the how and why.”

Andrew Ear Bachelor of Technology and Innovation

“If university systems aren’t looking at this program as a model to help students find their purpose, they’re not doing something right. UTS Hatchery is part of a greater ecosystem that is going to accelerate the creation of a new economy that uses the power of markets to solve the world’s social and environmental problems.”
