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, homemade baked goods, homegrown salads, phone booths, standing desks, 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.
Originally built in 1997 as Timberline Dodge, the vaulted ceiling and huge skylight arching over the Great Hall surrounded by a mezzanine and conference rooms were all invitations to build someplace inviting, warm, green, and inspiring. We couldn’t resist. A combination of offices, wide open co-work space with comfy couches and old library chairs, creative cubes and unique meeting rooms… many spaces allow members to work, connect, and thrive.
We love being a part of the Kerns neighborhood. Come see us at 2420 NE Sandy Blvd!
We encourage members to ride Trimet bus lines #12 and #19 – plan your trip here! – or to ride your bicycles. We have a Biketown hub around the corner (see image below), and we have bike storage inside and outside of our space. Help us stay compliant with our Sustainability in the Workplace Certification! Thank you!
