Joining Hatch Quarter:
“When I consider partnering with a business, there are two things I try to understand:
Do I believe in the vision of the business and the impact it’s trying to make?
Can I work with the people behind the vision?
For Hatch Quarter, these both hold true. As a first-generation migrant, I strongly believe in the value that international immigrants and refugees bring to a nation, in particular those with an entrepreneurial spirit. I believe this is a passion we need to cultivate, support and grow. This is a vision I support.
In terms of working with the people behind the vision, I believe in both Aiman and Mo. These are people who have worked hard, taken risks and demonstrated success. They are people who are humble, honest, and reliable,” Scott Ko.
“Scott Ko was Hatch Quarter’s 2017 startup prize winner and since we started working with him, he has demonstrated great abilities and skills. He has a wealth of experience in starting innovative businesses and he has been a part of the Melbourne startup industry for a while now. Scott is a brilliant asset for Hatch Quarter and I believe he will be a great addition to the team. We are excited with the bag of skills and experience that Scott carries with him and we look forward in working with him,” said Hatch Quarter founder Aiman Hamdouna.
