You Are Cordially Invited to the Hatch Quarter Playbook Launch Event!

Did you know that of the 2.1 million small businesses in Australia, 660,000 of these are migrant-owned businesses?!


Starting from scratch in a new country will always come with its challenges and hardships. It’s for this reason In August of 2017, Hatch Quarter was awarded a Round 3 Grant from LaunchVic to deliver programs that would assist first generation migrants and refugees to launch startups in Victoria, including regional and remote areas of the state. Hatch Quarter promised to deliver an event series, community meetups, and a Playbook to support first-generation refugee and migrant entrepreneurs in Victoria.

With an astonishing amount of talent among the migrant and refugee community, Hatch Quarter’s Playbook is the key to unlocking their further potential.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our final proposition, the Playbook!

Australia’s entrepreneurial spirit is rooted in courage, drive and resilience, so what better way to celebrate this momentous occasion, than with an extravagant event. Join us on September 27th 2018, to unite as a ‘Nation of Entrepreneurs’.

Speaking and officiating the Playbook launch is the Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy, Philip Dalidakis MP and CEO of Launchvic, Kate Cornick.

Hatch Quarter’s Playbook will pave the way to prosperous growth in the Victorian startup industry, and this event is your chance to get a hold of the FIRST physical copies!

Eventbrite - Playbook For Migrant and Refugee Entrepreneurs Launch Event

Available in English, Chinese, Hindi, Arabic and Spanish, the multilingual Playbook is a holistic guide for pioneering migrant entrepreneurs, covering topics from idea testing, to business law here in Victoria. With valuable tips and tricks from different industry experts and motivational stories throughout each chapter, the Playbook will serve as an imperative tool to the migrant entrepreneur community.

LaunchVic Round Three judge, and chair of Multicultural Business Ministerial Council, Rohini Kappadath, believes the Playbook will solve the problems faced by newly-arrived migrants and multicultural communities who lack visibility into relevant networks.

“It will compress the time to lift-off for so many and wipe away months, sometimes years, of struggle for our aspiring, ambitious and hardworking new migrants. Bring it on,” she said.

We look forward to seeing you there – don’t forget your exclusive entrepreneur passport, of course!
