Our education programs deliver hands-on training and collaborative workshops that require your full commitment. Your main outcome upon completion is a ready-to-go business—a hatched startup idea.

We hope to create a cycle of learning, growing and mentoring between entrepreneurs in our community, which we believe will encourage more meaningful connections to develop between the startups around us.

We run our programs in our innovation hub & coworking office. This space is home to our resident startups and the location of many events for entrepreneurs and startups throughout the year, which means you really get to see how everything works and connect with us in more ways than one.

“I recently attended the Hatching course to validate a startup idea of mine. I was impressed by the structured and well thought out validation process. Matt and Aiman who ran the course are experienced and professional providing a good blend of enthusiasm to understand the concept whilst also pressure testing the idea by challenging the underlying assumptions.”

Be curious and ask more

At Hatch Quarter we love to ask and we get excited when you ask as much as us. Here are some questions we thought you may think of with some responses.

I think I’ve already have validated my business idea. Can I move onto the Creation phase of the program?

Yes, our workshops don’t have prerequisites as such. It is up to you to choose where to start, and we’re happy to work around your needs. It’s always a good idea to have an initial meeting with us to discuss your current situation if you’re unsure where to begin.

I am not sure if I should invest my time and money into my idea. What should I do?

One of the benefits of our ideation program is that it will help you to figure out if your idea is viable, and worth your personal and financial investment.

I’m currently working on a full-time basis. Am I going to be able to make the program?

Our program can be delivered to suit your schedule. For example, if you work during normal business hours, we can run the program after-hours or on the weekend for you.

I am not in Melbourne, can I still enrol for this program?

At Hatch Quarter, we have a global reach and attitude. While we believe our courses work best when they’re delivered in person, we’re more than happy to accommodate you and work through the sessions using online channels.
