The Entrepreneurship Hatchery

Founded in 2012, The Entrepreneurship Hatchery has been driven by the ideal that “students should leave University of Toronto not only with a degree but with a job they have created themselves. Ten or fifteen years from now, we will be able to point at a number of successful entrepreneurs that have had a formative and enabling experience at the Hatchery”

The Hatchery provides a comprehensive suite of programs and services designed to help students with entrepreneurial ambitions form teams, develop new competencies and launch their Startup companies. Over the last seven years, The Hatchery has helped to launch over 80 new startups, which collectively have raised about $60 million in seed funding. The goal of the Entrepreneurship Hatchery is to evangelize, nurture and launch startups within the Faculty of Engineering and the University at large. The Hatchery has attracted significant mindshare from the students, between 2013 and 2019 a total of 1,622 student had applied making it a very competitive process where 870 students in 276 teams have been accepted in the same period of time.

These remarkable accomplishments are made possible by generous supporters like you. Thank you!
