Everyone at HatchLab is a community member, and community is everything.
A home for visionaries and realists working for a better world.
HatchLab PDX is for local innovators and social entrepreneurs who imagine, launch and scale enterprises that improve communities. It’s that simple.
We are home to:
- people who want to learn how to create the kinds of economy and communities we want and need
- people who are willing to take risks
- those who approach problems with a new, innovative perspective
- locally-owned companies to build community wealth by retaining capital
- social enterprises to focus on systemic solutions
Each is a part of the entrepreneurial spirit we foster here at Hatch. We also welcome those who support these enterprises—professionals, volunteers, mentors, allies, partners—each a keystone of the innovation ecosystem.
More than co-working
HatchLab PDX offers more than just a space to get work done.
Membership includes access to not only physical resources – such as meeting rooms, coffee, tea, web conference equipment, etc. – but also invites you to our monthly community gatherings, events focused on social enterprise and innovation, and a panel discussion series (and live Hatch the Future podcast recording) devoted to talking about pivotal issues in the field of social entrepenurship.
In addition, HatchLab PDX is proud to host The Social Pitch, a semi-annual program devoted to supporting aspiring changemakers with the help of the Portland Hatch community.
