The Hatchery


COA's venture incubator, aka The Hatchery, provides eligible students space and time to develop their for- or non-profit, as well as the potential of seed funding. Students selected for the Hatchery receive:

  • a 10 week rapid prototype intensive
  • office space & equipment
  • business mentors from the MDI and COA communities
  • personal support services to launch their enterprise
  • the potential of up to $5,000 in seed funding

No other liberal arts undergraduate business program offers this resource; we regard it as key to fostering the transition from graduating student to functional entrepreneur.

The Sustainable Business program is overseen by Jay Friedlander, the Sharpe-McNally Chair of Green and Socially Responsible Business. It was founded with the generous support of Henry and Peggy Sharpe and Jay McNally '84. replica watches uk wax replica replica watches
