Hatch & Germinate is an idea incubator format that we think is great for startup founders, companies and organisations, graduates, budding entrepreneurs and students in a classroom. It’s a format for having and testing ideas.
We take the analogy of seed germination, using soil or substrate to fuel the innovation and then going through various testing and idea development phases to bring an idea or seed into a healthy seedling.
Hatch & Germinate is a system that we use internally at Horbury & Goffe when developing new ideas and are currently developing various methods of releasing it into the world, through information products, events and services. You can find out more at the Hatch and Germinate website.
If you are interested in getting involved please get in touch. We are particularly keen to use this with entrepreneurial students at universities/colleges or with the unemployed, giving them entrepreneurial skills, as well as a potentially solid business idea.
