WHAT IS HATCH MATCH?
What defines a great networking event is meeting people you want to meet and having great conversations that stimulate action. Hatch Match is designed to help you do just that! Through active, facilitated networking, Hatch Match makes introductions and provides you with access to about 20 investors in a format that’s convenient, efficient, and fun.
Hatch Match is an annual event, organized by The Hatchery aimed to bring together entrepreneurs, investors, and other parties interested in growing and being part of Miami’s vibrant internet/web/information economy.
HOW THE EVENING WILL WORK:
Think investor-entrepreneur speed dating. Arrive at 5 PM to start scheduling meetings with investors. It is important to be on time as meetings are arranged on a first come, first served basis with 4-5 investor meetings being the norm.
Announcements are made at 5:45 and the meetings kick off at 6 PM. The whole event is timed to be prompt. Each one-on-one meeting lasts about 5 minutes, so arrive early and have your elevator pitch honed! After your investor meetings are over, return to the general networking rooms for networking. Light refreshments will be served.
Limited to first 100 registrants.
I have the view that we’re here on Earth to do big things. It’s kind of a waste not to, right?

As soon as somebody says ‘there’s a problem,’ a little bell should go off in your head and say ‘opportunity!’ And that’s what happened. We saw an opportunity in verification for accredited investors, and so we created Accredify.
